As well as providing big sculptures for the parade, Spacecadets ran inflatable making workshops with the public to create hand held and wearable inflatables.
The Hebden Bridge, Handmade Parade is a spectacular parade created by local people (and friends and visitors), helped by a bunch of fantastic artists. It’s a celebration of creativity, the art of the handmade and is just sheer fun! There are three weeks of workshops beforehand, open to anyone who wants to make costumes, carryable art or help create giant puppets and animatronics. Up to 700 people walk (or dance) in the parade through the streets of Hebden Bridge, watched by thousands.
