Brighton Puppetry School offers a professional pick and mix of high quality courses designed to stand alone or combine to create an excellent comprehensive foundation in puppetry skills and techniques. Courses operate on a range of levels and cater for all those who wish to build their puppetry skills, from keen amateurs to established artists, conveniently programmed at weekends and evenings to fit around your existing work/life commitments.

*COVID-19 UPDATE – 1 October 2020*
In the light of continuing concerns about spreading the Covid-19 virus, particularly to those more at risk, we have been running a special Autumn of Remote Courses you can take from home. All of these are now finished or fully booked, and we have enjoyed running them even if it’s not quite like being together in person.
While we still hope to get back to teaching in person when it is safe to do so, we’re anticipating the next batch of courses (to be announced soon) will again be online only.

“A really great two days. Gently challenging, thought provoking and inspiring. Darren‘s wonderful enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and support made this a great course. Thank you”

Story Making with Puppets

“Tons of great techniques, skills, ideas and practical advice about manipulating puppets, performance, meaning etc. So good!
Will be invaluable to me and my ongoing development as a performer / writer / puppeteer.”
