Making Puppets from Found Materials

2nd & 3rd July - 10-5pm @ the Boo

Making puppets from found materials is about drawing inspiration from the object’s intrinsic qualities to create a character. Participants will explore a variety of “stuff” to discover what different materials have to offer and will learn to use form, texture and movement to inform the puppet’s character.

Everyone will make at least two puppets and in the process will answer essential questions such as should the material be altered or left as it is? What type of joint will create the right kind of movement? Do I need a control mechanism and where should it be located? The course is suitable for all levels and no previous puppet-building experience is needed.Two full days.

£100  – (both courses can be taken together for £130)

*ONLY 8 SPACES LEFT!

Tips for Animating Found Objects


4th & 5th July - 9-1pm @ the Boo

Everyday objects have a narrative power; they speak of culture and identity, memories and desires. In this practical workshop participants will create characters by drawing on the objects’ symbolic potential; learn to identify and maintain the object’s point of focus; use dynamic of form and the material’s intrinsic qualities to develop the object’s means of locomotion; and use rhythm to convey a sense of emotion in the object. Two half days.

Cost – £50 (both courses can be taken together for £130)

*ONLY 9 SPACES LEFT!
