This puppet workshop is all about creating exciting textile puppets and do little performances with it.
The participants are shown how to make and manipulate their own puppets.
The workshop lasts for one hour and a half. First hour is for making puppets from textiles to various objects like sponge, polystyrene, cardboard, tape, paper and more. The last half an hour is for creating joyful stories using our new made puppets.
