Puppetry is such a fantastic ministry tool and puppet building is a fun and creative way to begin your journey with puppets. Puppet building also allows for reflection on God’s creativity and humour, seen in his amazing (and quirky) creation. In this workshop you will build a basic puppet (a sophisticated sock puppet) and along the way you will learn to:
– Create interesting facial features (eyes, eye lids, mouth, tongue and hair)
– Create a pattern and fur covering (and puppet stitching).
– Build hands and arms.

This workshop includes the use of equipment such hot glue guns, scissors, sewing machine and sewing needles. Children will require your supervision and need to be able to follow instructions. Children will work with the paying adult on the same puppet.

What do I need?

Wear old clothes. All materials provided.

Book or inquire.

Book before August 20th:

Adult Ticket (includes 1 free child)
