Puppet Club


Hans trying on hat

The new Compass Puppet Club is the start of a new stream of puppetry activities at Compass Theatre in Ickenham.

Using the wonderful youtube tutorials from Little Angel Theatre | Puppet Theatre for Children, Families and Adults we have made our 1st prototype Compass Puppet; Hans, from Hans, the Witch and the Gobbin.  See how Hans was made here.

Can you help us make the full cast of characters?

We are running Puppet Club on Thursdays, from September for volunteers (currently adults) to come along and make-a-puppet, learn and share puppetry skills and help us prepare for a puppet production of Hans, The Witch and the Gobbin, in September 2022.

There are plans for quarterly social nights (Puppets, Pizza and Pinot!), with visits from guest professionals, and a week of puppet-related events in the October half-term holiday.

We hope to add an after-school club for younger puppet-makers from January 2021.
