"Shadow Puppet Workshop" - part of Merri-bek Family Festival (MBFF)

In this integrated craft and performance workshop, children will create their own individual shadow character made from scraps, crafts, tinsel, tape and teddy bear fluff.

Participants will then be guided in performance techniques to draw emotion and drama out of the characters they make. Parents and adults are welcome to participate, or simply make a puppet along with the child... or just watch and snap photos (!)

At the end of the workshop sessions, each participant will have made a ‘talking thumb’ shadow puppet and will have learned some techniques for making the character come alive on screen. Presented by Bunk Puppets

This event is FREE- but bookings are required. ---- A children's workshop activity part of Merri-bek Family Festival --
