Puppet Making Workshop with Steph Reeves of Gynormous Rawkus

As part of our new Culture @ Home programme, Live Art Local invites you to join professional puppet-maker and puppeteer Steph Reeves for a step-by-step guide to making your very own talking puppet out of junk and easily found materials.

Steph will talk you through the techniques of manipulating your brilliant new puppet and the session will end with a puppet sing-along!

To join this workshop you will need Scissors, household junk- plastic tubs, lids- Anything Goes!

Some useful materials include carrier bags, card, scrap fabric, double-sided tape, any tape (if you cannot access double-sided tape, a newspaper and any scrap coloured/patterned paper, stapler, glue, Pens, paint, string or wool. Pipe cleaners, wire, and elastic bands.

If you would like to take part but due to the extra pressures heaped by the pandemic cannot afford extra materials like double-sided tape, please contact us as we have a small pot allocated to sending those who need it, small amounts of materials to aid their participation.
