Puppeteering Workshop

Fresh from two weeks of Film Workshops for young people, the Kings and Clowns Drama School is running a Puppeteering Workshop beginning next Monday 25 July.

Once again it will be located in The Studio in Harristown, operating each day until Friday 29 July between 10am-2pm. A presentation of the students' new abilities will take place at 2pm on that Friday.

The Workshop will deal with all the skills needed to be a puppeteer, including eye focus, lip sync, breathing, and puppeteering voices.

Building characters and improvising scenes will also feature, as will working with 'human puppets'.

The cost of the Workshop is €40, and bookings can be made by contacting Rani Grennell on 087 7923139.
