Get creative! Make puppets! Make new friends! Make new puppet friends!

 

Created specially for North East budding puppeteers, the first ever term of the Moving Parts Puppet School will offer quality and fun puppetry training and performance opportunities unique to the region in Spring 2021. Kids and teens will be taught by Will and his robot sidekick ZB - two puppetologists on a mission to repopulate the puppetsphere through puppet creation and they need YOUR help! Budding apprentices will develop skills in making and performance, team work, individual creativity, design and confidence through 10 sessions taught via Zoom in Spring 2021. Apprentices will receive a certificate at the end of the course.

 

Kids (ages 7-11) and Teens (aged 12-18) will develop puppet making and performance skills before working towards creating their very own short puppetry performance piece in a home pop-up theatre.

 

There are only 12 kids / household places and 12 teen / household places available so don't delay in booking!

Participants MUST live in an NE postcode (NE1 - NE61), as per our funder conditions. We want to open this opportunity out further in the future.
