’IT HAS BEEN GREAT TO LEARN AN EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE THAT DOESN’T NEED SPECIALIST MATERIALS.’
‘THE TUITION HAS BEEN REALLY SUPPORTIVE, ENCOURAGING AND ENTHUSIASTIC. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.’
A course over eight evenings to make a performance-ready puppet person to your own design.
From character and design to structure and joints, this course will guide you through the processes and techniques necessary to make a fully functional puppet ready to take away and put to work.
Led by Isobel Smith you will design the puppet’s structure, make head, hands, body and controllers, before clothing and bringing your unique puppet to life.
Using specialist papier-mâché techniques, leather, wood, fabric, glue and paint you will draw, sculpt, stick, paint and sew your puppet into being. (may need some finishing at home, full instructions will be given).
You will leave the course with a great puppet person, and making techniques to transfer to your future puppet projects.
Led by acclaimed puppetry artist, coach and RCA Graduate, Isobel Smith
