Autumn Term starts soon at Brighton Puppetry School

Thinking of joining us this term?
Our courses are booking well, we’ll remove the paypal buttons when courses are full – just so you know!
Autumn term kicks off with MAKING PUPPETS FOR SOLO PERFORMANCE, 26 & 27th September – a weekend course in anticipation of our 8 week evening class to explore how to make a show with your solo creations. (We’re offering a 10% discount if you book both courses together).
We think solo puppetry is a fantastic way in to discovering the creative potential and many uses of puppetry. The puppets we will make on the Puppets for Solo Performance course are specially designed to be moved beautifully with just one pair of hands.
After designing the structure of the puppet, we’ll use quick papier-mâché techniques to model a head and hands, then make a cloaked body and add rods to control the puppet’s movement. Students will leave the course with a wonderfully expressive, strong and effective solo puppet and making techniques to transfer to future puppet projects.
We’re delighted by the support and enthusiasm for the launch of Brighton Puppetry School and hope to see lots of you at our launch party this Sunday 13th September.
It’s a good chance to ask us any questions you may have about our courses for this term and next year.
Please RSVP if you’d like to join us for cakes, makes, a toast and a song (this is just so we can make sure we have enough materials, cake and, of course, champagne!).
Very best wishes,
Darren, Beccy  & Is x
