Christmas Crankie Workshop

Christmas Crankie Workshop

Have a very 'Crankie Christmas!'

13th December 2020, 11am - 3pm online via Zoom

Details of this workshop:


Join us for a special Christmas craft workshop and learn the art of Crankie making in an online course that is closely related to puppetry!


Crankies are a wonderful traditional craft, sometimes also known as a ‘moving panorama’ and they make a great Christmas gift, accompaniment to a puppet show or can tell a story by themselves. 

What you will learn and do in the Christmas Crankie short course

In this short course you will explore storyboarding, pictograph plot development, the craft and techniques of making a crankie and the history of these magical hand cranked machines.

The course will be taken online, via Zoom.
