There is a certain mystery contained within a vintage suitcase, a wonderful sense of anticipation before the lid is lifted to reveal the story hiding inside….
This two day workshop takes inspiration from found objects and from the fascinating collections of belongings and treasures, often discovered hiding in old suitcases, in attics, flea markets and second hand shops. These, combined with unseen journeys travelled, and the lives and memories contained within the cases, provide great inspiration for puppet stories and characters.
Learn to make changing sets and a small cast of puppets, finishing with a portable miniature theatre, ideal for use busking, at festivals, in schools, hospitals, living rooms or anywhere!
There will be a Show and Tell sharing of work created on this course on Sunday 10th at 7 – 9pm.
Vintage suitcases will be provided.
This course was developed in collaboration with Little Angel Theatre.
