Enjoy a fun and creative week where we will be exploring theatre and puppetry! During the week you will build one or more of your own puppets, and learn how to bring them to life for a performance at the end of the week. You will see that anything can become a puppet- a sock, a spoon, an egg carton and more! Each day will be split between visual and performing arts. In addition to puppetry we will explore improvisation games, scripts and some exciting fundamentals of being on stage.
Monday - Friday
9:30am - 2pm
2 - 3pm
*This workshop is an in-person workshop hosted in the art barn of Howe Hill Farm.
All puppetry tools and materials will be provided but feel free to bring anything from home that you would like to add to your puppet construction.
