Saturday 15th June, Dublin

Puppetry entails storytelling, and is so much more than just using props. It inspires both the audience and the puppeteer, as together we bring the story alive. It offers a new, enhanced approach to literacy through a hands-on approach.

In this CPD workshop, we will :

  • Explore how to involve children in puppetry and how to choose the right story
  • Practice setting the scene, with attention to detail, and our senses of aesthetics, balance, warmth and joy
  • Explore the importance of memory skills and learning stories by heart
  • Practise using music to build a bridge between scenes, using simple instruments
  • Stretch and enliven our imagination muscles
  • Strengthen our courage and confidence to keep creating puppet shows for the joy of your group of children, after the workshop is over
