Make a Puppet! Workshops for Kids
A great opportunity for kids to build a muppet and learn basic puppeteering skills in these half-day school holiday workshops.
Join the wonderful and extraordinary professional puppeteer and puppet-maker Ifat Vayner in these creative puppetry workshops and open the door to the world of puppetry. In each workshop, participants will learn how to construct a muppet using different materials, how to give it a voice, personality and movement, and how to develop short scenes. A different muppet design will take centre stage in each workshop. Loco the Taco is designed with a younger age group in mind, and Jacques the Chef, for a slightly older group, but the age brackets suggested are very flexible.
Chef Jacques: Monday 11 July 2022, 10:00am-1:00pm for kids aged 10-15.
Loco the Taco: Tuesday 12 July 2022, 10:00am-1:00pm for kids aged 8-11.
No previous art experience necessary. All materials included. Completed muppet is yours to take home. This course is offered as an in-person workshop in Hamilton.
