I will show you my home studio and introduce you to some of my collection of over 25 puppets. I will talk a bit about different types of puppetry and why I decided to base myself in Berlin after travelling the world with different theatrical productions. I will teach you how to make your own upcycled monster puppet. I will teach you how to manipulate and perform with your brand new puppet.
I am a puppeteer with over ten years' experience. I've worked on shows in museums, circuses, festivals and theatres. I've brought giant rabbits, dragons, dinosaurs, snakes and spirits to life in over 7 countries. In Australia I ran my own pop up puppet theatre called Umbrella Theatre, and was an ensemble member of Sydney Opera House's Creative Play program for kids. In Germany I've taught puppet making at Zirkus Cabuwazi, worked with the Puppenphilarmonie and am a member of Puppetry Slam Deutschland.
Tea, coffee and healthy snacks
I will provide all materials, equipment and decorations needed for making your puppet.
I will host you in my cute home studio in the heart of Neukölln, a bohemian district full of artists, cafes and community collectives.
Children cannot do this activity alone, they must always be accompanied by at least one adult. We will use materials such as glue, paint, glitter, so be prepared for a little mess.
