Back by popular demand, Brazilian superstar Milton Cunha returns to The UK Centre for Carnival Arts to deliver two carnival arts workshops - on Rio Carnival Arts and Float Building, Rio style. These exciting workshops will provide both aspiring and established carnival artists with an introduction to Milton's work in carnival, and the benefit of his experience of working on the Rio Carnival. The first day offers an overview of carnival costumes and dance, tips on delivering a successful carnival, and a hands-on experience of creating a carnival prop with recycled and budget materials.

The second day will feature a hands-on workshop in producing a Rio-inspired carnival float prototype. The workshop will include a presentation, as well as an exercise in transitional and contemporary construction of practical scaled models. Participants will work in groups to construct a physical float prototype.

Workshops take place on 12th and 13th July, 11am to 6pm, at UK Centre for Carnival Arts, 3 St Mary’s Road, Luton, Beds, LU1 3JA. The price is £50 per day, or £80 for both days. Please note, these workshops can be attended either as an introductory one day workshop, or as a two day workshop.
