The first thing to make is the head, using clay on a polystyrene base. Once made, it is painted, and hair is added.
"I really enjoyed making the puppets because you can use your imagination and be creative." (Year 6 pupil, 2022)
Some puppets also have hats.
Next we move onto Sculpey hands and clay feet, which are also painted.
The puppet is then assembled and the costume is made.
Next we use one of the purpose-built racks to string the puppets up.
The finished puppets!
