Sock Puppet Making Craft Workshops

Larrikin Puppets provide performances and workshops that are in line with the Design and Technologies curriculum at Australian Primary Schools. As part of this curriculum students create a simple two dimensional design then learn about working parts and how to turn their design into a three dimensional puppet character. We can look after one or both of these components.

Larrikin Puppets presents our Sock Puppet Making Craft & Performance Workshops. Using super fun and colourful puppetry kits featuring a range of pre-cut materials, we teach students how to construct a beautifully detailed, quality sock puppet they can perform with and take home – something that has a long shelf life that they won’t just throw away.

Sock Puppet Making Craft WorkshopThe craft segment is followed by a 30 minute puppetry performance workshop where we teach participants how to operate Muppet-style puppets.

 

Brisbane Entertainment, Childrens Entertainer, Primary School | Puppet Show, Puppet Workshop - Book WeekWhile waiting for the glue to dry in the newly created sock puppets, we lend everyone a professional puppet to work with as we teach lip sync, arm movements, emotions, voice work, walking and various other techniques used to bring puppets to life. Great for building confidence, improving communication, gross motor skills, fine motor skills and having fun!

This puppet making and performance workshop is perfect for schools, vacation care / OSHC, libraries, shopping centres, festivals and fetes.
