I attended this summer to a one-week workshop in Boisbuchet, a place in the middle of France on an old estate welcoming designers from the entire world each summer… The workshop I choose was animated by the famous designer Shin Azumi.
The brief he gave us was « environment x entertainment » : the aim was to create something entertaining related to the place…
As Boisbuchet is a castle, we created with my fellows H’sien & André Duarte a dragon, to tell the true (!) story of the designer-knight and his fight to subdue the beast, which is now protector of the designers in this domain !

The dragon is articulated (head, neck, wings, tail…) and well balanced, so that it moves softly with the wind… but you can also ride it and operate it with strings.
