Free training workshops in parade skills for leaders of school or community groups preparing Parade the Circle entries help you plan your parade ensemble. Workshops take place at the parade studio (located in the Flats) beginning March 11 and continuing through April 1. In addition to helping you learn how to conceive your parade ensemble, workshops offer an introduction to mask-making, costuming, and giant puppet construction, and provide opportunities for consultation about your group's entry.
Training workshops are designed as an introduction to a variety of parade techniques. They offer a chance to experiment and exchange ideas. While consultations about your ensemble are available, there will NOT be an opportunity to begin actual construction of your parade ensemble. This year leadership training workshops will focus on demonstrations, brainstorming, troubleshooting, and expanded time for consultations.
