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.
