Shadow Puppetry and Marionettes

Shadow Puppetry and Marionettes

Join us for a FREE weekly online course on making and using puppets available exclusively to Corby borough residents. Every week we will take you through crafting and using puppets to tell stories. The group is about to embark on two entirely new courses and you can join too:

Shadow Puppetry – starting 8th February or 9th February

Join Josh Macrow, our resident master puppeteer, as he takes you through everything you need to make a shadow puppet theatre and make and use your own creations to tell enchanting stories.

Marionettes (Puppets on Strings) – starting 22nd February or 23rd February

We will send you a specially designed kit to create and decorate your own marionette and, Josh Macrow will be on hand to teach you how to get your creation moving.

Live Sessions run weekly through Zoom and you can join us either:

  • Tuesday Evenings at 6pm
  • Wednesday Evening at 4pm

Participants will also be able to also access our previous puppetry videos to make your own cardboard puppets and foam hand puppets.

No previous experience is necessary and we can deliver everything you need to take part for free. If you would like any support in accessing the live sessions through Zoom contact Tom Briggs at the details below.
