Thumbelina is a simple wooden puppet
The workshops, which run until Saturday 5 June
are suitable for children as young as five.
There are lots of fun activities to choose from
including making a marionette puppet - a string puppet, rod puppets
and clay modelling.
During the first part of the workshop you will
be able to work together under instruction to create the basic structure
of your puppet.
Then you will be given a chance to be creative
by giving your puppets character, costume and decoration.
There will be lots of different types of material
to use for your imaginative skills.
You'll be able to explore fabric and paper cutting,
string threading, bead making, knot tying, cutting and sticking
- with guidance always on hand if needed.
