Shadow Puppetry

An exciting exploration of science, art and citizenship that’s perfect for an Enrichment Afternoon, arts lesson or after school club.

In this workshop, the children will learn about the Eastern origins of shadow puppetry and see a shadow puppet show performed live before working as a group to create their very own show to be performed at the end of the session. They will learn about the different materials and techniques used to create this unique art form and develop imaginative ways of applying form to content, exploring the use of light and dark and the creation of shadows.

Specific themes of the workshop can be tailored to suit any curriculum level, text or project. 

Ages 6+.
