2017/18 Puppetry Courses for Adults – booking now with Early Bird DISCOUNTS!

WELCOME to our 2017/18 programme of brilliant puppetry training for adults.  We are really pleased to announce that bookings are now live!

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to put together an excellent programme for this year that builds on our most popular courses, offers some new adventures and experiments with different formats for sessions to fit around your existing life / work commitments.

New courses include the thrilling Calling all Witches exploring puppetry shamanism and [re]-animation with our very own sorceress, Is Smith; Kickstart Your Puppetry  – a one day crash course guaranteed to get you devising fab new puppetry work; and some themed Making courses – creating Puppet People and Puppet Creatures –  which will bring you a variety of making techniques, materials and styles that will bring your puppetry ideas to 3-dimensional life.

Elsewhere, you get a second chance to investigate Puppetry and Storytelling and Puppetry and Therapy, both sell out new courses last year and 17/18 also returns to some of our most popular and acclaimed courses, including essential core skills session Puppetry Fundamentals; the rich artistic playground of Shadow Worlds and our two unique long-term creating courses – Develop a Short Puppetry Show and Writing with Puppets.

Excited?  We are! And, best of all, there a 10% discount for all courses booked before September 1st.  We look forward to welcoming you to a brilliant BPS puppetry course soon.

High Five! Talking Puppets

5 & 6 Dec 2015 / £95
Join Brighton Puppetry School for a weekend of specialist puppet making.

These large-scale puppets have moving mouths making them perfect for delivering Christmas day speeches and for Festive Carol Singing! Of course a puppet is not just for Christmas and this style of puppet is great for exploring the use of text in puppetry all year round!
We’re even planning a weekend course: Voicing Puppets, in 2016 to help to bring your creation to life.

Who will you make? – whether muppetish or more life-like – the puppet’s character is up to you. You will discover how to make an effective moving mouth and will construct the puppet’s head and torso using soft modelling techniques, you will add one life-sized arm to the puppet and an empty sleeve – with one hand operating the puppet’s head and the other becoming the puppet’s second arm your Talking Puppet will be capable of very precise hand movements to accompany it’s speech. High Five!

You will leave the course with puppet making techniques to transfer to your future puppet projects.

Hope to see you there.
