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

This course is free and you will complete your Bronze Arts Award. It includes going on a trip, for example visiting an exciting puppet organisation or seeing a theatre performance using puppetry.
