We made a stage in the forest

Creating an activity base that connects forests and children Vo.2 "Creating a forest stage"

At an old private house in Takatomachi, Ina City, Nagano Prefecture, local mothers have been renovating for several years.

This year, we held a workshop with children and local people to create a stage.

With an old, tattered shutter that is almost non-functional as the background of the stage, I made a bold cut to express the silhouette of the mountain.

For the stage, we used three kinds of trees (cypress, red pine, and larch) in the area and pasted them in a zigzag shape like a mountain. Paint with a stencil with silhouettes of pictures related to this place (mushrooms, mountains and leaves, cats of Dosojin, turtles hiding nails, dogs and fish), and decorate the stage with the things used for the molds as mobiles. Did.

Finally, all the children sang a song to celebrate the completion. I think we have a fun stage.

In the future, I would like to report again on the special page with videos and photos.
