Junk Puppets Workshop

Cost: $25 (Min. 12)

Time: 3 Hours


Using a range of recycled materials, students will be able to create a character of their choice. From animals to robots, this project is only limited by their imagination. Students will enjoy bringing their character to life while learning a range of 3D art and design skills.


On completion, students enjoy being able to make their puppet interact with those made by their peers, which enables them to develop their story telling skills and imaginative play.

Students are given to opportunity to develop skills in form, texture, line, conflict and harmony, size and colour.

It may be possible to organise spare parts puppet theatre to run this workshop depending on the day. However this will require a minimum of 15 students and cost an extra $15 per student.
