Rod Puppet Making

Join expert puppeteers to create your own rod puppet using sustainable materials.

Experts from Moving Parts Arts will help children create their own simple rod puppet using bamboo, material, cardboard and foam. Develop design and sculpting skills by choosing what head to carve out of your block of foam using scissors – a human? an alligator? an alien from the plant Galtraxia?! It’s up to you! Once you’ve finished constructing your rod puppet there will be the opportunity to decorate it with whatever bits and bobs you can find before adding the all important eyes so it can see!

The session involves the use of scissors to carve the puppet head and hands from recycled foam. All tools and materials provided.

Moving Parts Arts is an award winning arts and community development organisation founded in 2017. The belief that everyone can be creative is at the core of what they do and they believe that puppetry is a unique way of bringing people together and breaking down barriers.
