I assisted lead Artist Tony Mason along with a small team of artists to create the decorative elements of a Dragon Puppet. The frame for this was custom made in China and then shipped to Tony for some structural elements to be added, he then travelled up to the Vale where we created the skin, scales and limbs for this magnificent beast. We named her Bessamer or ‘Bessie’ for short and she made her debut at Oldham Illuminate on 16th February 2018. The fire and smoke elements were created by Kieran Whitrow at pa-BOOM.
