The Octopus Ice Cream concept came directly from a Coleg Llandrillo Foundation student workshop. Small World Theatre instantly loved the idea!

Due to global warming cephalopods like Octopus and squid are thought to be increasing in numbers in UK waters. The Octo Ice Cream has been named Lady Penelope through a competition held by the Station View Café. Lady Penelope holds a ‘to the beach sign’ and points the way with one of her tentacled limbs!

Small World Theatre artists’ description:

Lady Penelope’s frame is made from donated pipe offcuts of heating pipe. Her eyes are fishing floats, skin re-used bubble wrap, painted and covered in UV stabilised clear tape. The traffic cone and fishing net were washed up on the beach and fashioned into an ice cream cone.
