Oudtshoorn ABSA KKNK workshops, March 2012

This project involved the building of 100 ostriches that performed in the parades on the 1st and 2nd of April through the streets of Oudtshoorn to mark the start of 2012 ABSA KKNK Arts Festival. Roger worked with 10 people from De Hoop, a small farming community outside the town, to build the puppets.

The initial part of this project consisted of a workshop at Beyond the Moon farm in Wilderness where Roger showed the builders the art of working with the materials.

These young adults each produced an ostrich that they operated in the parade and in a workshop in De Hoop, they built an additional 90 birds for members of their community.

The focus of this project was on the development of skills in producing these birds as well as teaching experience in showing their community how to move the puppets convincingly.



Roger would like to thank Agri Oudtshoorn for their assistance in finding and co-ordinating the participants from De Hoop, Shaun Laubsher from Sondor Industries and Volker from Chantex Heavy Machinery for helping us out on this project. Sondor provided the materials at a discounted rate and Volker from Chantex put a lot of his time and effort into the water-jet cutting of the parts.

Thanks to M!a van Zyl for her time spent digitizing all the parts for water-jet cutting.
