Shared with Us: Puppets

Our most recent workshop was led by the great Steph Reeves of Gynormous Rawkus where she taught participants to have a go at making their own puppets out of junk and other materials they can find around the home.  We are lucky enough that some of our participants were happy to share with us what they made during Wednesday 1st July’s session.

Week 6 – Steph Reeves (Gynormous Rawkus) – Junk Puppets

It’s week 6 of our Culture @ Home programme and we were lucky enough to have Steph Reeves of Gynormous Rawkus  join us this week to show us how to make a puppet out of the junk you have lying around at home and a few other materials.

This week is doubly special as our session took place as part of Children’s Art Week, a two-week celebration of free activities for children.

Our Culture at Home sessions as made possible thanks to Arts Council England Emergency Response funding, which has enabled us to pay creatives to share their talents with you at home, making it free for you!  We still have 7 sessions coming up, with each one being suitable for children, so to find out more and book a session (always at 2pm on a Wednesday), visit liveartlocal.co.uk/culture-home

 

To join this session you will need:

Cardboard; pens; scraps of paper or fabric; carrier bags; newspaper; tape (preferably double-sided and masking).  Pipe cleaners and other scraps are also very useful!
