theatrephoto Some print projects fly through the press in no time while others take a little longer. A prime example of the latter is a Mini Shadow Theatre from artist and physiotherapist Jennie Pedley.

The project was funded by a grant from the Wellcome Trust and inspired by old exercise manuals in the Wellcome Trust Library, London. Jennie's ususal artistic practice is to create live shadow shows and exhibitions, so developing a product was a new experience. Jennie was assisted in sourcing eco-friendly materials and in managing the project by Lee Sargent at Calverts – 'he was very patient and showed great attention to detail, I would recommend the company to anyone' Jennie says, she is also grateful to paper engineer Nick Drenchfield.

The Mini Shadow Theatre, comes in a beautiful packet, which contains everything you need to create your own mini shadow shows, with no cutting involved; an easy to assemble theatre, silhouettes of figures and backgrounds printed onto acetate, a shadow screen, two blank panels to create your own content and clear instructions. All you need to do is add light.

The Mini Shadow Theatre is currently available at Tate Britain shop (during the Muybridge Exhibition), the National Theatre shop and Pollocks Toy Theatre Shop Covent Garden. Jennie also uses it to run Mini Shadow Theatre workshops at various sites including hospitals and schools. Jennie can be contacted via: www.jenniepedley.co.uk www.minishadowtheatre.com
