This Children’s Art Week join theatre-maker, Alys Williams for a super active and fun session for all the family!  Fun and energetic drama exercises, whole-body theatre, a “dance party” and more!  

Want to learn a handy acting trick for how to look like a toddler, a teenager, and an elderly person? This workshop will show you!   You’ll also learn and experiment with how your emotions change your body.

Those who join us for this high energy session will also learn an introduction to basic puppetry using household objects, and then to how to create a human puppet using a scarf and plate. 

Be inspired, play and have fun with us, and Alys’ favourite puppet, Eve, will even be popping along to say “hi” too!

To join this session you will need a clothes peg; a piece of paper; scissors & sellotape; scarf/blanket; something round that is not fragile (e.g. plastic plate, plastic lid, old CD).  

If you would like to join this session but due to the impact of coronavirus cannot afford to buy the few materials you need you may not have at home, please contact us and we may be able to send you enough materials for the workshop.
