I run creative workshops for children and adults covering theatre design, puppetry, art making and drama. I have also been lucky enough to lead a few longer projects.
I was lucky enough to work with a group of bright and wild children and the brilliant arts organisation, Lyra, to create a filmed performance called 2020 Vision. Between September 2020 and June 2021 we worked together online, learning about puppetry and stop frame animation and exploring our feelings about the current time through art.
Puppetry How To
I made this video for Puppet Animation Scotland during lockdown. In it, I explain how to make a simple 'talkie' puppet with things you may have around the home.
‘Zozobra’ means anxiety in Spanish and in this hands-on workshop we make our own worry puppets out of recycled materials then throw them onto a celebratory bonfire! By writing down our anxieties, stuffing them into puppets and watching those figurines full of gloom turn into smoke we hopefully feel a sense of relief and more connection with our community.
Theatre Design and Puppetry
I offer hands-on workshops about costume design, set design, puppet making and puppeteering for a range of ages. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an enquiry!
