FREE online Puppetry course

Learn online with Puppeteer Josh Macrow

About this FREE online course

During the Winter 2020/2021 lockdown, as part of our Connecting Corby project, Made With Many created an online puppetry group for local people who were stuck at home and bored.

Local people of all ages were encouraged to get involved in this fantastic creative opportunity that they could join in with from home in online sessions that encouraged them to have fun together by making and telling stories with puppets, under the guidance of professional puppeteer Josh Macrow. No prior experience was required and participants were given free activity packs that included everything needed to make and bring their puppet creations to life.

Weekly follow-along videos and online Zoom tutorials were available with Josh to help participants learn puppetry techniques, give characters style and personality and to help with telling stories….as well as the opportunity to virtually meet other local budding puppeteers. And now, we have made them available publicly online so you can all benefit.  Those of you who attended our Puppetry Day on 29th May will have the materials required to complete one of the courses below…just scroll down to find the one you need.
