Puppetry Workshops

These workshops will be run in line with our COVID restrictions and guidelines. For full details of the School’s current policies, see here.

Have you ever been fascinated by the creation of large scale puppets at festivals or events? Or maybe you have an artistic or imaginative flair that you’d love to use to create for the stage?

If you’re currently studying or have training in Art and Design then these workshops could be perfect for you.

These workshops led by BOVTS tutor Meriel Pym aim to give you an insight into the world of puppetry and how they might be used in events and theatre.

The creative industries in the UK are booming and there is currently a shortage of skilled professionals to work in these exciting and rewarding roles. These workshops is designed for those in school years 12 and up. They will provide an accessible and fun introduction to working behind the scenes in the theatre.


We’ll be running workshops across Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December. We encourage you to attend both days to get the full experience.

Bookings are now open!
