Shadow puppets / 9-15 years

You’ll create the cast of your puppet theatre play from a variety of materials, that you’ll cut up into shapes and figures using a laser cutter. You’ll assemble them and attach strings so that you can manoeuvre the puppets with ease and create life-like movements. At the end of the workshop, you’ll put your puppeteering skills to the test.

You’ll get to take your very own shadow puppets home with you after the workshop is concluded.
