Puppet Making for Teachers provides an excellent introduction to puppet making projects for teachers, parents, care-workers, therapists – anyone who’d like to re-ignite their creativity and open new possibilities with puppets.
Come and explore puppet making ideas and techniques to apply in the classroom, home, or any setting where you are working/playing with children. (Of course it’s fine if you want to keep all the ideas for yourself too!)
Using a broad selection of materials like air-dry clay and wooden spoons to paper bags, newspaper and plastic bottles, this course will explore a variety of tried and tested, easily achievable and spectacular puppet projects for you to try with children (or keep to yourself!). From simple string puppets to large spectacular group projects you will leave the course feeling totally tooled up!
This course will focus on making, there will be some opportunity to discuss how to use each type of puppet effectively in your setting.
