Through a puppet, we can say things that we wouldn’t otherwise have the courage to say or do.
A puppet is both the essence and reflection of a character; imagine making a puppet based on yourself, being able to show yourself as you would like other people to see you, to show the world who you are.

Whether you are a complete beginner, love art and craft or just plain curious by the end of eight weeks you will have created a unique puppet.
Created in June
Came to life in October

I think I’ve lost my mind.
All around this world I’ve looked
