WORKSHOPS & CAMPS

Discover the world of puppetry through a series of workshops offered to small groups. We make puppets, invent or adapt stories, and learn to manipulate them while developing small performances.

 

These workshops are well suited for anyone who love art, storytelling and a little bit of magic. 

WORKSHOP A LA CARTE:

 

These face to face workshops varies in length and content (style of puppets), as well as audience (children, adults, homeschoolers). Each workshop can be adapted to specific age group. They happen in my workshop, Tuesday to Saturday, between 10 am and 2pm. 

 

If you have a small group of kids (2-4 total), find the puppet style you are interested in, and contact me directly to discuss options.

 

For homeschoolers, I work with parents and students as needed to adapt the content of the story (invented or adapted) to a specific aspect of their curriculum (science, social science, literature).

I really liked the class, because we not only made puppets, but also learned how to move with them and how to make it show emotion.

The class also led her to look up more books and videos on puppetry. It was a motivating and inspirational class.
