Puppet Lady Workshops

Puppet Lady workshops provide a fun and engaging experience for people of all ages to explore and create their own exciting characters while gaining craft skills and team working abilities. 

My unique hand puppets are simple to make using basic materials and little or no sewing.  This enables people of any ability to produce very effective puppets that are fun and easy to manipulate. 

Workshops often explore a theme or use a story as a basis for the puppet design, which can be tailored to your individual needs. 

Although puppet making is the emphasis of these workshops most projects culminate in a performance or sharing event.  There are also ongoing music and movement activities, which can intersperse with the making process creating a multi-disciplinary experience for all involved. 

Workshops can be tailored to cover aspects of KS2 / KS3 curriculum or just for fun.
