Puppet Building with Scoot Youth

Join the Riverhouse and Scoot Theatre this October for a one-day introduction to Puppetry and Puppet-making, suitable for all ages!

Participants will start with the basics, bringing their own “paper person” to life and then progress to creating a Giant puppet ready for performance this Christmas in Scoot Theatre's production of "The Selfish Giant" at The Riverhouse. The Giant puppet will also be on display in Riverhouse's Christmas Exhibition.

Guided by a leading industry professional, this workshop is a fun and friendly way to get creative - all levels of experience are welcome! The workshop is entirely free! 

Scoot workshop leaders have worked on some of the most exciting puppetry projects in film and theatre, including the most recent Star Wars trilogy, the Jurassic World and Fantastic Beasts franchises, the Olivier-Award Winning Life of Pi and the National Theatre’s smash hit War Horse.
