I thought your workshops were excellent; it challenged the students’ perception of imaginative possibilities, clearly established professional puppetry techniques and gave them activities to apply and explore narrative with various unusual ‘found objects’

Tutor, Paston College

We provide workshops for schools and communities, including:

  • Object manipulation– learning the Principles of Puppetry through play with everyday, found objects. Students will:
    • breath life into recycled/ found objects
    • explore the imaginative possibilities of everyday objects
    • explore the use of narrative with animated objects
  • Workshops are most suitable for Key Stages 4/5. but can be adapted to suit your students’ needs
  • Resource packs are available
