About Puppetry workshops for your primary school


Puppetry is an artform that encompasses all other artforms and can help young people develop their creativity, dexterity, oracy, literacy and decision making abilities. 


Our workshops can be tailored to fit in with your curriculum so let us know what your students are learning about at the moment and we will ensure the workshop meets your learning outcomes!  Our workshops also make a great end of term activity for your school as they are fun, memorable and educational.


PuppetSoup can provide all the materials required for making puppets and our courses and workshops can range from an hour to a whole day. We can even offer weekly classes through a whole term or longer if your school would like a long term partnership or project..


All of our workshops are completely designed around your requirements so the best thing is to email us with your class numbers, age group and budget and we can help arrange the most appropriate puppetry workshop for your school.
