In the last of our current run of workshops we have ended on a high after a wonderful day spend with the children in Sant Quirze del Valles. The workshop we were doing today was shadow puppetry, using the story of 'George and the Dragon'. These kids have amazing creativity and such an inspirational energy for playing with their puppets. We have had a brilliant time. The workshop has been very popular this year and each child has taken their puppet home with them with great pride.
Over the past year we have held a whole load of fantastic workshops. Everyone has created the most amazing puppets. Each one entirely individual and each one full of character. Tomorrow will be the last in our current run of workshops and we will be breaking our own record by doing 5 workshops in one day with over 150 puppets being made. Tomorrow is a shadow puppetry workshop for kids from 5th and 6th grade. Photos to follow.
Thank you Limud festival for a lovely afternoon. We had a great time with the kids and turtle was very happy with his birthday party. And silly cow is still dancing. What a nice view to look at whilst doing the show as well.
Thanks to everyone who made it down yesterday. It was a great triumph and the weather held off too! Which was nice.

I know it is only October and the weather is still so nice that nobody wants to think about hats, scarves, fairy lights and Christmas, but you might change your mind when you hear that Curly Ru Puppets will be at the West Hampstead Community Sale on the 22nd of December. The stall is booked and the puppets are being made. So come on down and pick up a puppet for a nice Christmas gift. Can't wait to see you all there. Corner of Iverson Rd and West End Lane from 10am till 2pm.
We are very please to introduce our latest project. Tiger. He will be just one of the puppets to feature in our latest show Stories From Around the World.
