Puppets Who Tell
For ages 9-14
A drama and puppetry workshop investigating story telling with puppets. In the session we will explore using drama, voice and play. We will use up-cycled material to create your own puppet, build characters and listen to their story.
This is an inclusive workshop. We welcome children on the spectrum and neurodivergent children along with their siblings or a caregiver to participate in the workshop.
This workshop will require participants to carry with them:
- Crayons or sketchpens
- Masking tape
- Wool and Goggly Eyes (optional)
*Please note participants may be required to purchase certain materials for the workshop at the venue.
