School Workshops
Puppeteers from the Puppet Theatre Barge visit a large numbers of schools each year, introducing pupils to the art of shadow puppets in conjunction with the National Curriculum Key Stages 1 and 2.
Our workshops use the art of shadow puppetry to cover aspects of:
  • English: listening, speaking and communicating ideas.
  • Science: light and shadow.
  • Design and Technology: designing and building.
Over the course of a day, children are introduced to historical puppets from around the world and to the principles of shadows puppetry. The children are given a practical demonstration of how to make shadow puppets before collaborating in groups to write, build and perform their own playscripts.
