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.
The shadow puppets are yours to keep after the workshop is concluded.
