Brighton Puppetry School – new courses

We are delighted to announce that Brighton Puppetry School is here!Our new programme of specialised vocational training in puppetry is under development during 2015, with a full launch planned for September 2015. Brighton Puppetry School will be running a workshop or two in the run-up to our launch, just to whet your whistles! Details below:


Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th March 2015  /  £95  Meaningful Movement: a weekend course exploring the techniques to effectively articulate yourself through puppetry and developing original material to tell your own stories. Lead by Darren East and Isobel Smith, this course will share a number of ways into making strong, emotionally truthful, visual material with puppets. From technical and analytic methods to exploratory, open-ended discovery, puppetry lends itself to drawing on a wide range of creative approaches. This short course will help you find the ones that work best for you, and give you confidence to use them effectively. You will leave with a rich toolbox of ways to make powerful puppetry performance material, and developed puppetry skills for putting it into action. There will be some space to apply your new skills to a puppetry project you have in mind, and/or with your own puppets. This course is most suited to people with some experience of puppetry, or with ideas of ways they would like to use puppets. Keen beginners are also welcome.
