Magic Pudding Cubby

Magic Pud Cubby FLYER

The Magic Pudding Cubby was an art activity for families that ran alongside the Children’s Festival organised by Creswick Museum to celebrate the centenary of Norman Lindsay’s book the Magic Pudding.

In August wild willow was collected in the waterways of Creswick with the help of the scouts. This was used to create the dome shaped structure over a 3 day period at the end of September from Friday 28th-Sunday 30th.

Young people were engaged at Creswick Primary School and Creswick North Primary School in September to inspire them to come along to the project during the school holidays. Jodie Goldring visited the schools and worked with students to make multicoloured random weave balls of cane to take home and show their families.

The Dome was then created with the help of families on the long weekend of Friday September 28th to Sunday 30th October.  See pictures below that document the process of making the Magic Pudding Cubby over the 3 day period.
