Artistic Director of The Unnatural Disaster Theatre Company, Logan Robins, is thrilled to offer “Puppetry 101”- an exciting three day theatre workshop at King’s Theatre! Crafted specifically for young artists ages 8-14, this workshop will allow participants to discover the art of puppetry through a collaborative crash course on object manipulation, storytelling, and building our own puppets out of recycled materials!
Whether it be designing cardboard puppets and masks or creating memorable characters through play with hand and finger puppets- this workshop strives to offer an ample balance of hands-on activities and imaginative collaboration.
Perfect for an aspiring puppeteer or any young person who likes to create!
