Summer starts here

Suitable for 5 to 11 year olds.

Using a wide range of materials, children and young people will learn how to create and decorate each puppet/character, how to make simple props and staging and will be encouraged to perform a show in front of their family.

In these sessions young people and their parents/carers transform everyday materials such as empty cereal boxes and fabric scraps into exciting puppetry and art projects that can easily be replicated at home, with broad themes so that each child can pursue their specific interests.

These sessions foster creativity and open-ended play and encourage families to find creative ways to share stories and to value seemingly ‘worthless’ materials by putting them to imaginative uses to provide hours of entertainment.

Children will be inspired by existing stories or will make their own and will be able to retell them/perform them in their newly made mini shadow theatre or with their newly created rod puppets.

Children and young people will be supported by our facilitators to put together a ‘mini performance’ when they get home after the session in front of friends and family.
