PUPPET WORKSHOPS FOR YOUNG ADULTS

IMG_2491Puppets are incredible.

Through a puppet we can say or do things that we wouldn’t otherwise have the courage to say or do.

A puppet is both the essence and reflection of a character; imagine making a puppet based on yourself, being able to show yourself as you would like other people to see you, to show the world who you really are.

Puppet making is a fantastic art form as it encompasses so many different skills.

Whilst making a puppet you will learn or develop these skills:

Design

Drawing

Painting

Collage

Construction

Textile design

Stitching

Whether you are a complete beginner, love art and craft or just plain curious by the end of eight weeks you will have created a unique puppet.

These courses are free and include all materials.  

This is a fantastic opportunity to explore how the arts can contribute to your mental wellbeing. Open to ages 16 to 25.

There are only eight places on each course.  To book a place or find out more:
