Drawbridge Puppet Productions
Whether following a Drawbridge puppet show or just by itself, a puppet making workshop will provide any group with more knowledge of puppets. A simple, fun approach to creating puppets will enhance the creativity and imaginations of all who participate. It is preferred to limit each workshop to no more than 30 children. Each workshop is designed to run app. 60 to 90 minutes. We provide materials; but in traveling workshops, scissors, crayons and glue sticks are helpful.
Cost for one puppet making workshop at the Drawbridge Theater - $50 Instructor fee +$ 2.00 per child (limit 30)
Cost for one traveling puppet making workshop - $ 100.00 + $2.00 p/child (limit 30) + Mileage fee.

WORKSHOP 1 - Make a Paper Plate Stick Puppet
WORKSHOP 2 - Make a Holiday Paper Plate Stick Puppet
Choose from any of the 4 workshops below.
WORKSHOP 3 - Make a Butterfly or Dragonfly Finger Puppet
WORKSHOP 4 - Make a Fluorescent Fish or Shark Puppet
Children choose from either a blank butterfly or dragonfly template. They then design and decorate their own puppet's wings and face. By inserting a finger in the back of the puppet, it can magically come to life, flapping its wings and flying through the air.
Weather permitting, the children
can even fly their puppets through
the theater gardens following the workshop.

These can be made into either stick puppets, or strung to make a simple marionette.

For a personalized theme, contact us and we'll design a suitable puppet template the children can use.
