We run puppetry and puppet-making workshops for community groups, individuals of all ages and schools.
A large part of our work focuses on fostering an interest in the natural environment. We are currently planning a series of outdoor workshops for budding puppeteers of all ages, which will involve foraging for natural materials, making a puppet and exploring stories with your puppet.
If you are interested in booking a workshop for yourself or your organisation, get in touch with us via the ‘Contact us’ page and we can have a chat about your requirements.

With live performances not expected to re-start until Spring 2021 and in-person workshops impossible at the moment, we as a theatre company currently have no way to support ourselves financially other than through creating online content. Any donation you make, no matter how small, will help us pay the professional artists we work with and continue to develop our first show, When Seagulls Saved the World, that we hope to bring to audiences next year.
Thank you for your generosity and support.
