In collaboration with Director Rachel Warr, we offer a variety of workshops for those interested in the incredible art of puppetry and shadow theatre.


Our workshops aim to create spaces to explore, devise and be inspired; attendants will acquire new skills as they are having fun.


From professional development to puppetry in schools and care homes, workshops are tailored to the number of people, age and abilities of the group.
