Ellie Chaney will be helping people make costumes. She is a freelance artist who creates artwork that tells stories visually using illustration, animation and puppetry.
Since 2007 Ellie has also worked on celebratory arts events such as parades, lantern festivals and carnivals making giant puppets, masks and costumes, which perfectly compliments her love of making things, dressing up and dancing. She also runs workshops supporting people to develop their own creative skills and confidence. She has worked on events including Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade, Ulverston Lantern Festival, Manchester Day Parade and Skipton Puppet Festival.
