Moving Parts Puppet School

Autumn Term 2021 courses open for booking!

We have four courses available as part of the Autumn Term 2021 programme taking place between Sept - Dec.

All four courses can be attended either in person at the Carnegie Building in Newcastle or accessed online via Zoom. You can even do a bit of both! The Carnegie Building is accessible for wheelchair users. All courses are open to anyone living in the North East of England.
All four course tickets include a pop-up box theatre and puppet making materials packs FREE of charge.

These tailored courses are aimed at complete beginners to puppetry and those with a little more experience. Participents will be shown how to build and perform with their first ever puppets! In a welcoming environment run by puppetologist Will and his trusty robot assistant ZB, budding puppet apprentices will learn how to design and make their own puppets from a range of materials in different styles. Then they will put these creations into practice by learning how to perform with them in their pop-up box theatre, which is included free in the course price along with all craft materials. Parents/guardians and friends will be welcome to attend the final session in December as apprentices perform their newly created shows to each other.
