KanDo Arts Puppet Making Workshops are designed to help children express themselves creatively. The sessions are relaxed and informal to create a non - challenging environment. We believe this is key in encouraging all those taking part to produce something special.
When the children have made their puppets they are shown simple puppet manipulation skills. Using these simple techniques, they can bring their unique creations to life in a short drama piece.
Workshops can be tailored to your specific needs and are carefully structured to suit various age groups and skill levels.
The workshops listed below can vary from a couple of hours, to a morning or an all day session. These sessions can be developed into more detailed projects which require multiple visits.
Below are some examples of workshop content and duration. Of course these are only examples and can be adapted to suit you. So why not do a 'pick & Mix.
Puppet Making Workshops
One / Two Hours: The children make a puppet and are given a brief introduction in manipulation and movement.
Puppet Making and Manipulation
Morning / Afternoon: A making session followed by a more detailed look at Puppet manipulation and movement. Concluding in a short drama piece.
Multi - Session
Mullti - Sessions consist of two or three visits. The length of the visits will depend on the individual requirements of the school or organisation. The sessions will include puppet making, exploring character and movement in more depth. Developing character work through rehearsal and leading to a group performance piece.
We look forward to your call or e.mail to discuss your requirements.
