Totems come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can be made to display at your venue, school, festival or event. Totems can be constructed by participants, in workshops with Ballyhoo Arts. However, it is also possible for us to make a totem in advance, that can be decorated by visitors to your event. Totems can also be lit at night to great effect.
These three totems were made in advance and decorated by visitors to Bishop's Waltham Festival in 2002, 2003 and 2004
