Watching, Playing, Making: An Introduction to Puppetry
This workshop is an hour and a half long and starts with a demonstration of a variety of puppets - some from our shows and some specifically made to demonstrate movement and design. The children learn how to hold rod puppets and communicate with them. The last part of the workshop is spent making a simplified version of the Widdershins rod puppet. Using a kit provided by us the children will end up with their own easy-to-use puppet which only improves with age. The puppet will be ready to take home at the end of the session.
