Every Monday evening from 7 Oct 2013
After two sell out courses in 2012 and 2013, puppeteer and performer Claire Harvey (The Little Angel, The River People) returns to lead sessions in all elements of puppetry, from making to operating to devising, with one course for beginners and another for improvers or advanced puppeteers.
LIFE - A six week puppetry course for beginners
Over this six week course various puppetry styles will be explored, puppets will be made and participants will be given tools to apply to any inanimate object or puppet to bring it to life. A perfect course for beginners and improvers - we'll play with puppets, spoons, binbags, teacups and many other materials to explore the essence of movement and how to transfer it, to give the illusion of life to anything!
Every Monday from Oct 7-Nov 18; 6pm-7.30pm
