This is the second workshop in which you can learn how to make a Bunraku figure puppet out of foam and wire. Bunraku puppetry originates from Japan where the puppeteers are seen on stage whilst performing. The team at Ventnor Exchange are theatre makers and especially interested in puppetry so would like to pass on some skills we’ve learnt in the last few years so that you too can create your very own animated figure!
In Part 2. we will be finishing our puppets by designing and making their clothes and adding hair, character features and accessories so please make sure you have attended the week before too!
To take part in any of our workshops you must be signed up to our Young Creatives scheme, it’s free and easy just click here !
£2 on the door.
