Our Workshops

Workshops carefully crafted to inspire, stimulate creativity, develop speaking and listening and feed into literacy. Building confidence in story making and performing.

We specialise in Shadow Puppetry and Story Making and have crafted two bespoke workshops in these fields. Both start with an Assembly where costumed characters perform a short story, a perfect introduction to the day’s activities.

‘The Case of Curiosity’ is our story-making workshop. Using tried and tested story-making techniques to make a new tale together, learning the skills to be a budding story maker.

‘Shadowy Stories’ is our shadow puppet workshop. Design, make and share- develop characters and learn about telling tales through shadow play.

Suitable for all ages-

Foundation, KS1 and KS2, up to six classes in a day.

Linked to a range of topics, but best if you choose and tell us what you are working on.
