On Wednesday two more points of the Star were reaching their final stages.
The group led by Patty Callaghan exploring Loss, were decorating their star point with images and text.
Later on St Paul’s Beavers, who have been working with Diana Hamilton came to see their star point. I asked one young gentleman, how they had made the exciting traces below.
Apparently the tracks are the orbital paths of painted marbles, rolling inside containers against the dark of space.
The children have also been screen printing spacy inages down at the Print Mill on Mill street.
The Beavers have added more shiney stars to their screen prints and started sticking their creations onto the star point. We’re looking forward to the finished point!
Barnaby Festival presents its biggest ever theatre performance, a magical family show The Astronomer’s Story on Sat 18 and Sun 19 June. Christ Church, Macclesfield is transformed into the secret laboratory of a mysterious astronomer who discovers the secret of bringing the moon and stars down from the heavens and fills the town with starlight. But the town is in great peril because he doesn’t know how to send them back. Will you help him?
The Astronomer’s Story is the gateway to the La Lune adventure, where the families of Macclesfield are called upon to save the town!
