Make Your Own Puppet @Home – tutorial videos are out!
We have been busy over the last few months working with puppeteers, designers and a filmmaker on a FREE online puppetry and storytelling programme for children, young people and their families called ‘Out of the Deep Blue‘.
The series aims to raise awareness of the climate emergency crisis and other environmental issues and features weekly, step-by-step tutorials making puppets out of recyclable materials and household items. Each brilliant puppet comes from a different designer and the whole series is available to watch now on our YouTube and social media channels until September.
This project is funded by Birmingham City Council as part of the Creative Online Connections commission, supported using funding provided by the OffSite affiliate partners (Appetite, Birmingham Hippodrome, DanceXchange, Déda, Derby Festé & Wild Rumpus), Arts Council England and Without Walls Blueprint R&D support.
