Activity: Puppet Making for Adults
11 May, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Everyone is interested in puppet-making
Our recent workshop for children Heroines, Highwayman and Hereward the Wake: Tales from the Fens generated a huge amount of interest from adults as well as children. Lots of people wanted to get involved, so how could we refuse?
Join stop-motion animator and puppet-maker Heather Colbert for our latest workshop, which will explore polymer clay sculpting techniques, to create a Bunraku-style puppet as part of our ongoing Tracing Traditions project at the Museum.
No prior experience is needed and we will provide the raw materials, although you may want to bring along your own as well to make your puppet’s costume truly unique.
Tickets are free, but you must book so that we can manage attendance.
This activity is part of Tracing Traditions, a project funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund and delivered by the Museums Association
