Irene Schleining, Director of Whale of a TIme said, "We are thrilled that the workshop was a success and it was fantastic to be part of the London Green Fair this year. It felt like being in the middle of the countryside with so many green and aware projects in the middle of London. Participants were well informed about green issues."
At the London Green Fair children and adults from all over London came to model animals and plant species in clay. We had about 1000 participants over the weekend! Amongst the masterpieces were whales, elephants, giant squids, tigers, lions, trees, butterflies and many other endangered species. Everybody was having a whale of a time!
Sinclair Eiloart, Festival Manager, London Green Fair, said about the Whale of a Time Workshop, "We are absolutely delighted to welcome Whale of a Time to the show this year, with their fantastic workshop offering clay modelling of endangered species free for all to join."
Hannah Roberts, Kids Zone Coordinator, London Green Fair and Urban Green Fair, said last year, "We have only heard positive feedback from participants at the Whale of a Time Workshop and you can't miss the happy children walking around with their models they had created during the workshop."
Participants comments included:
