Get Handy in 2020!

Join us as 2020 kicks off for two fun and skill-filled weekends of puppet making:

Jan 25 & 26th Vintage Glove Puppets
Make a fantastic glove puppet using your scraps of vintage fabric to create a fully functioning glove puppet / keep-sake. This step-by-step course leads you through the process of making head and hands, clothing and a brief session on puppet hairdressing to give your puppet it’s own cheeky and beguiling charm.

PLUS New for 2020***
March 28 & 29thSew a Fabulous Rag Puppet
This soft sewn approach to puppet making allows for flexible, easily manipulated puppets capable of expessive movement. Versatile and achievable making suitable for all levels and easy to do at home once you have mastered the basics. A sewing maching will be available along with hand stitching gear!

Both weekends led by artist puppeteer Isobel Smith

Making Shadow Worlds

 

Weekend 30 April & 1 May 2016 / £95 / CREATING
Shake up your practice, improve your skills and explore the possibilities of using shadow in performance and creative practice on this creative treat of a weekend!

Students will make installations from objects and materials provided and explore the effects of animating them with light upon a screen. You will experiment with the effects of moving objects and moving light sources.

The course will provide a safe environment to try new ideas, take creative risks and open up the possibilities of working with light and shadows under the encouraging watchful eye of course leader Isobel Smith.
