Out of the mitten – Sat 27th of January at 12 pm to 1.30 pm

In this workshop, a mitten is shaped into a little guy for the puppet theatre stage. If you have a lonely little mitten or glove at home who wants to play pretend, take it with you. The workshop also has a variety of gloves for workshop participants.

The magic of tabletop theatre! – Sat 23rd of March at 12 pm to 1.30 pm

In this tabletop theatre workshop, we will build a simple tabletop theatre puppet, which has many tasks on the puppet theatre stage. Welcome to play!

Workshop instructor is Anne Lihavainen.


Glove as a jolly friend? – Sat 27.4. from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m

In this puppet workshop, we make a hand puppet from a glove. First we shape the head. Then we look for a glove that fits our hand and the head. It will be interesting to see what kind of creatures are created in the workshop when these two things come together. Welcome aboard!

Flower marionette workshop – Sat 11.5. from 13:00 to 14:30
