About the course

This exciting puppet making course will enable you to gain new skills, grow in confidence and most importantly have fun. You will be learning how to use a variety of different materials to sculpt, design and make your very own puppet.

Puppetry is about bringing objects to life, there are many different forms of puppetry ranging from shadow puppets, table top puppets, muppet puppets, carnival puppets, rod puppets to hand puppets and marionettes. Puppetry is universal but there is no right or wrong way of making and creating a puppet. It’s about experimenting in a creative way, having fun and learning something new to make you feel inspired.

We will be working through the Bronze Arts Award, a great Level 1 qualification which everyone will achieve by the end of the course. At the end of term we will have an online showcase of the puppet you have produced alongside the work from the other Creative Courses.
