Artz offer a range of entry level puppetry workshops that allow students to create their own hand made puppet characters and bring them to life with speech and drama.
Our team will guide students through the skills and techniques needed to create this entertaining illusion. Often young people use the puppet to reveal certain aspects of their own personality that they are not confident enough to express themselves, the puppet eventually gives them the opportunity to be who they want to be.
The workshops will allow students to explore different voices and accents and create a completely new identity for the puppet, which we often find is more along the lines of who they would actually like to be.
Puppetry is often only used as a means of entertainment performed by professionals but giving young people a few key skills can help them start to reveal their true personality, which can be vital in their own personal development.
This is a great project for young people which is always enjoyed by those involved;
