Part of Brighton Puppetry School’s Quixotic Circus
3-4 July / Weekend 11am – 6pm on Zoom / £125
** You will need to purchase materials in advance – see list below
Inspired by our Quixotic Circus you will make a small exquisite puppet, acrobat, clown, lion tamer, strongman, human cannonball… chose a character and consider how to transform its shoebox caravan into a useful prop or performance platform.
You will be led step by step through the making process – modelling, sewing, glueing the puppet into being and then adapting and decorating the hat if you wish. Basic puppetry skills will be demonstrated to bring the puppets to life. The skills you will learn can be applied to future puppet making, because – warning – puppetry is highly addictive! Some finishing may be required after the course, full achievable instructions will be given.
