Soapbox & Son is all about doing interesting things, in interesting places, with interesting people. And you can’t get much more interesting that the collaboration between everyone involved in Eating Sound.
Super excited to share the amazing work of The Masketeers, who have been very busy designing and making a new set of masks, headpieces and top hats for this the event.
With a mixture of creative projects behind her, from the launch of Kinetica Museum to publishing The Hedonist’s Guide to Art, their founder, Charlotte Tiley has always been involved in a variety of creative projects. She started getting her own designs into the public eye with her much loved masks for festival entertainers like The Artful Badger in 2008. Following the success of the festival experience she then developed mask making workshops as the Co-Founder of The Cabinet of Curious Creatures and expanded into doing bespoke wall hangings following the success of the ARTHouse exhibition in 2012.
With a background in costume design at National Youth Theatre, fashion and sculpture at Central St Martins and fashion illustration in Italy, Charlotte started experimenting with her initial medium of papier-mache combined with fabric work. She has now developed additional skills and collaborations with carpentry, upholstery and moulding to create truly original pieces.
Check out some of her amazing work, including some work-in-progress bits for Eating Sound (the two at the bottom):
