About the Course

Design and create simple animal rod puppets from basic, inexpensive materials, many of which you may well have at home.

On this course Judith will guide you through the processes and techniques used to make charming animal characters, suitable for small scale theatre (as well as making wonderful Christmas presents!).

The workshops will involve demonstrations and tuition time, as well as time for you to make your puppet in the class, with lots of opportunities to ask Judith questions and to interact with other participants.

This workshop will be delivered via Zoom. Download our Zoom Policy here.

To make your puppets you will need some simple materials, many of which you’ll be able to find at home. Download the materials list.
