Advanced Puppet Making: Rod
Presented by: Norwich Puppet Theatre
Thu 3rd Aug 2017
Running time: 10.30am-3pm
Whilst most of the puppets we make are rod puppets, this time you’re in control! Design your rod puppet from scratch, from the position of the rods, to the shape of the head, to unique characteristics and costumes. More time means more detail, and a chance to think more closely about character.
In these full day workshops, participants will have a chance to explore each puppet type in more detail. The day will start by looking at some of the examples we have at the Theatre, understanding their mechanisms and how they are manipulated. There will then be chance to make your own advanced puppet and learn some particular techniques for playing and performing with them.
All three of our advanced puppet making workshops can be purchased together for £50. Discount applied at check out. Click here to purchase.
This workshop is for ages 7+ years, children under 7 years will not be admitted.
Children will be working with their peers supported by our workshop leaders. Accompanying adults may relax in Theatre foyer (although it's a full day workshop!) or return to collect at the end of the workshop.
There will be a lunch break midway, so please bring a packed lunch. Light snacks can also be purchased from our shop.
