Every form of puppet has its own specificity for its construction, but the string puppet is certainly the most elaborate of all. However, even if it is quite possible to run a workshop where the trainee would mainly learn the basic compulsory rules of the string puppet craft while building a functional puppet, we prefer to base our technical support on the particular creative needs of each trainee. “Art” needs craft technique, that’s obvious, but technique without a need for artistic expression is just a lovely but empty shell.
So, if you wish to build a string puppet for a particular project, it will be a joy for us to help you make it.
It is also a pleasure for us to give workshops on string puppetry to groups. But even in this case, the transmission of techniques is always linked to the needs of the particular projects. We can also propose activities to give birth to ideas, to creative needs.
