Rock Oyster Festival 2021

We were chuffed to be asked to deliver a puppet-making workshop at this year’s Rock Oyster Festival.

The Festival, which ran from 30 July to 1 August, featured live music, cooking demonstrations, paddleboarding, wellbeing activities, and the Jellyfish Tent for kids and families. The brilliant puppeteers Amber-Rose Perry and Dan Armstrong ran our woodland creature puppet-making workshop, teaching festival-goers how to create their own finger/hand puppet out of an egg box.

The workshop proved really popular, with the participants creating some fantastic, characterful puppets. There was also an impressive array of festival headwear, including a funky Freckles and Freesias headdress. We’re already looking forward to next year’s festival!

If you fancy making a badger hand puppet out of an egg box and a black glove, head over to our workshops page for the tutorial video, photos and instructions.
