Want to take your creativity to the next level? Join this puppet-making holiday programme!

In this course, students will learn how to make a marionette. They will create the head, limbs, body, garments, and most importantly, bring it to life!

Marionettes are a type of puppet that are controlled from above with string/wire. They are an ancient form of art that go all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Greece.  Some historians even argue these puppets predated actors in theatre. Their popularity has continued through the ages, and they are widely seen in theatre today and in film and television (Thunderbirds were all marionettes!).

Throughout this holiday programme, students will be encouraged to express their own creative vision, whilst having fun in the process.

This course will run over three mornings from Monday 15th – Wednesday 17th July from 9am-12pm. it is open to 12-17 year olds and will be tutored by Anya Gladstone-Gallagher.

Spaces are limited, so get in quick!
