Sadly this workshop has had to be cancelled. We apologise for any iconvenience caused.


A relaxed, playful workshop for complete beginners to discover some basic principles of marionette puppetry.


Gain practical experience exploring the weight, natural range of movement and personalities of string puppets.


Play with movement, posture, stance and flight. Explore conversation between characters and how they react and interact.


There will be some improvisation and a chance for some non-pressured sharing of everyone’s experience at the end of the session.


The workshop will be led by Sophie Rimington, a puppeteer and puppet maker whose marionette experience extends over many years across film, television and theatre.
