Children's Workshop - Chinese Character Glove Puppet

The glove puppet is one of the most traditional styles we use here at the Puppet Theatre and during this session you will be making and decorating one with a Chinese theme.

The question is what character could that be? - maybe inspired by a dragon, a warrior or even a mythical creature. Whatever the character there will be lots of materials to choose from to adorn and decorate your puppet.

Each session is themed to a particular type of puppet - from rod puppet to marionette, Bunraku, glove and many more besides.

After constructing the basic puppet form, your child will be free to create the puppet's character using the vast array of materials provided. The only restriction will be their imagination and at the end they will have a wonderful puppet to take home!

Please note: during these sessions the child will be working with their peers, supported by the workshop leaders. Accompanying adults may either remain in the foyer and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee or return to collect the child at the end of the workshop.

Workshops last for 1½ hours with a short break midway for a snack or a drink. These can be purchased from our shop or you can bring your own.

Suitable for children aged 5 and over.
