Playful Puppetry

  • Workshop

Join artist Anne Cradden to make some wonderful puppet characters that we can move with our hands! Using things that you can find at home, such as cardboard rolls, old clothes, and socks, she will show you how to make simple sock puppets for toddlers and kitchen-roll puppets for older children. Kids can decorate their creation in any way they can think of, and then we will bring their characters to life in their own puppet theatre! Wild animals, wizards and witches, unicorns, fairies and dragons, superheroes, even your teacher, the postman or your baby sister…who is going to star in your story?

Find out by joining in with three online workshops by Anne Cradden, created for Cruinniú na nÓg 2020, presented by Draíocht and Creative Fingal.

All workshops will be posted to Draíocht’s Facebook and YouTube channels, starting on Saturday the 13th of June 2020 and weekly thereafter. Follow the link below for full details.

Would you like your finished work to join Draíocht’s #ShowUsYourArt Exhibition when we reopen? Email a photo of your finished artwork to with your name and age.
