Our Creative Journey: Puppetry is an artist-led workshop for early years professionals, delivered through our core programme or through bespoke training tailored to the needs of your setting. 

Creating and telling stories through puppets enables children to explore scenarios with feelings in a fun, safe and creative way.

You will learn how to breathe life into puppets using simple strategies. Communication through puppetry is a technique which removes some of the pressure that direct communication with a young child brings, particularly if a child is shy, worried or struggling to express their feelings.

In this session you will develop the skills and confidence to:

  • Create puppets using everyday objects
  • Bring puppets to life
  • Use puppets in performance, storytelling and play
  • Explore different styles of puppetry and their application
  • Explore how puppets can be used to overcome individual communication difficulties
