From here to there how realistic do puppets need to be
In this Practical workshop we will look at extracts ”From Here to There”, an international production by Tell Tale Hearts, from the UK, which uses a range of different puppetry forms. We will identify which forms are particularly beneficial to children of determination and why. We will also explore a simple puppet (an object from home) and find different ways of characterizing it to encourage meaningful participation with your child.
Task for parents: Have a go at puppeteering for your child and set up a simple scenario from the workshop. Model it a few times then leave the puppet for your child to have a go.
