In the Felufélagar shadow theater workshop, families create shadow puppets inspired by animals that hide in the sea and on land. Families learn about the magic of shadow theater and try making their creatures travel through different ecosystems at the end of the workshop. The workshop is intended for children from the age of 4 accompanied by an adult. All materials will be on site and participation is free. ÞYKJÓ is a multidisciplinary team of designers who work for children and their families in the field of experience design, installations and product design.
Their design work aims to stimulate children’s imagination and creativity in collaboration with educational and cultural institutions. Recent projects include the installation Hljóðhimnar in Harpa, the furniture lines Kyrðarrými and Hreiður and the participatory project Gullplatan: Let’s send music out into space! ÞYKJÓ has been nominated for the Icelandic Design Award twice, in 2021 and 2022, and was recently nominated for the international YAM award. The workshop is part of the series of events Family Saturdays, which is sponsored by Kópavogsbær’s Arts and Culture Council.
