Puppetry in Education
Puppet making is a very versatile educational tool. Our workshops and shows are accessible, creative, cross cultural and great fun. We offer workshops for both puppet making and puppet performance and they each hold great educational value. These workshops are designed to help students to develop key creative skills used in puppet making, performance and storytelling, such as language skills, communication and social and interpersonal skills. We also use elements of design, mathematics and physics in puppet construction sessions. For example, ideas of weight and balance in marionette making and performance, or the effects of shadow and light in our shadow puppetry workshops.
For schools we offer our:
- Simple Glove Puppet Workshop,
- Introduction to the World of Shadow Puppetry
- Simple Marionette Puppet Workshop.
We also offer all of our workshops in Spanish. Please visit our Puppets in Spanish page for more information.
