Enrol in Puppet Design & Construction
Course Code: ARTS2515
An aspect of theatre, puppetry is an ancient art form used in the earliest times to animate and communicate the ideas and needs in human societies. Stories that are fantastical, surreal, biographical and historical can sometimes be better told through puppets. And not just children's stories. Over the week, you will build a variety of puppets and devise puppetry pieces that will be shared in a group performance on the final afternoon. Skills developed in this course include design, story creation, sculpting, mold making, casting, carving, painting, sewing, and puppetry performance. No previous puppetry experience is required.
