We can also be booked for private events and parties. Prices vary depending upon the duration of the event/workshop, number of participants, type of workshop, travel costs and materials required. We bring all the materials and equipment but will need a working space and plug sockets. Please contact us for a quote through the website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We currently offer shadow, glove, table top, rod, marionette and gigante puppet-making workshops.
This workshop is great for young children (8+) as the only skills required are drawing, cutting and finding the end of the cellotape!
We bring a shadow screen and projector so participants can perform with their puppets. This can be as part of a show they create or individually.
Glove, Table-Top, Rod
& Marionette Puppets
These workshops are for older children (12+) as glue guns are required. Participants can create their own puppet.
Glove puppets are great to interact with as performing and 'speaking' skills are easy to learn. Rod and table-top puppets are great for moving and dancing puppets. Marionettes requires a slightly higher level of skill in both making and performing but can be easily learnt.
Short skits and scenes can be performed at the end of the workshops and we can also create short films for you to keep.
This workshop is great for small groups of older children (12+) as the scale and skills required make it a more of a challenge.
We bring suitable materials to create a shell/skeleton and body and embellishments to decorate the puppet. We then help instruct the group on how to maneouvre as a group and perform.
Quite a considerable space is required to work in and at least 6 hours so it is best as a full-day workshop.
