Different types of puppet making are explained and demonstrated in easy terms, using readily available materials, to inspire the students in the creation of their own puppet plays. Potential puppet types include: shadow puppets, rod puppets, toy theatres, marionettes, table-top puppets, and object puppets.

World Puppetry Demonstration

A World of Puppetry is both an introduction to the intriguing diversity of puppetry traditions around the world, and a demonstration of simple puppet making techniques. The presentation appeals to students’ imaginations and sense of wonder, as well as giving them a solid technical basis with which to inspire creativity in this interdisciplinary art form.
