String, or Marionette Puppets are some of the most complicated puppets to make and move. They require patience and planning and nimble fingers - knot for the faint-hearted!

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.
