Carnival Parade: Brazil

IMG_0049aBrazil was perhaps the most flamboyant country of the Carnival Parade. I handed the creation of the figureheads over to the 10:15 Club, who worked with Michelle Reader to come up ambitious sculptures which combined the base shape of a football with the creatures of the jungle.
And I worked myself with Year 7 from Teddington School to create an embroider- ed Amazon Rainforest for the banner, with a wide assortment of techniques, threads, beads and colours.
