Puppet workshops provide a space to develop the imagination, creativity, communication, making skills and have lots of fun in the process.
I deliver bespoke puppetry workshops, where participants make their own puppet characters, either entirely from their imaginations or inspired by a pre-chosen theme. As much as possible we use recycled materials, encouraging sustainability and introducing the endless possibilities of making from what we already have.
I have over 7 years experience delivering puppetry projects worldwide, working with children and adults including those with severe learning difficulties, both physical and mental.

"The children at Milagro School had so much fun making puppets with Harriet. It was great for their confidence and lovely they all got to keep their own puppet afterwards to boost their creativity and imagination at home."
-Coco Rim Amad, founder of Milagro School, Peru
