Using Puppetry in the Classroom, Saturday 17th January 2015, Patana, Bangkok

Using Puppetry in the Classroom
Saturday 17th January 2015
Bangkok Patana
Registration 08:30, Session 09:00 – 16:00
Cost: 6,000 Baht

A great opportunity for teachers from Primary and Secondary age range to add to their portfolio using puppetry to enhance learning.

Puppetry is not only a beautiful skill to master in its own artistic right but it can also be used as a valuable and exciting tool for exploring many areas of the curriculum. This day of puppetry play will begin by exploring the basic principles of puppeteering through the world of object manipulation, exploring the characters and creatures that appear when you believe that anything can be brought to life through imagination and a few tricks of the puppetry trade. We will then transfer these skills into a human form puppet which we will create with our own fair hands using a simple, yet hugely versatile, technique. Once we have created our new friends we will look at they myriad of opportunities and areas of learning which come when we explore scale; building small worlds and friendly giants we will learn to puppeteer as an individual and as an ensemble. In amongst all the fun we will take time to discuss and share the learning opportunities, cross curricular pathways and personal and social skills which can be developed in your classroom, with your students, through the wonderful world of puppets!
