Workshop Information

Course Outline

This course is led by the exceptional Creative Dimension Trust tutor Sian Kidd.  Each student will come away with their own, finished puppet and basic operating techniques.

You will get to design and make your own soft sculpture puppet. Throughout the course, you will develop textile based puppet-making skills through working with varied materials including foam, felt and leather. We will explore the process of creating technical 2-D drawings and using these to make our 3-D puppets. Suitable for all, but basic sewing skills are desirable.
