Puppet Camp Monday 24th July- Friday 28th July 2017 10am-1pm


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


This is a five-day course for ages 4-14.  Morning Session 10am-1pm

I’ve been running this camp since my own daughter was small and she managed one year to attend 7 sessions out of 8, she just loved it! ( I used to do a full month morning and afternoon!). Its a mixture of art and craft- invention and creativity, individually and in groups. We each make a puppet on strings, then put together a short play in groups of 3 or 4. Each group paints their own background scenery, and we present the plays on the puppet theatre on the Friday. There’s no pressure to have a speaking part, though people nearly always choose to, whether it’s animal sound effects, or the narrator, or  their own puppet. 

This year we will also make a simple boat and see if we can make it float, hopefully upright! We always get baking on the Thursday, and this year we will each make a cake and decorate it on the Friday to bring home.

There are up to 14 in the group and I will have two assistants also. There will be a break in the games room each day.

Places are limited, so please call me to book a place, or book in on line.
