This workshops is a fun and creative introduction to The Wrong Crowd’s approach to visual theatre-making, with an emphasis on puppetry. As well as working with some puppets from our recent shows, participants will get the opportunity to make their own puppets out of simple household materials and to learn how to operate them.
