Carnival Parade: France

I think France was one of my favourite Carnival projects.  It was a joy to work with Crofters and Octagon, and to share so much energy, liberating creativity and mess with these young people.  From papier mache food icons (yes, you really can see a frog - it's for the legs!) to the printed boxes forming the Eiffel Tower and the stripey t-shirts to the fake moustaches, never mind weaving with plastic bags, I think we managed to cover a lot of ground in a short space of time.
