Jungle Book. The set design was a tapestry of fabric to make a dense colourful jungle. The fabric was dyed and twisted into shape to make vines, foliage and flowers. Large fans of ferns could drop down and the monkeys played on a series of ramps. The design continued into the costumes where the characters wore textured fabrics to suggest fur. The open animal heads were made by Mark Wheeler who has created for us many spectacular hats and headdresses over the years.
