Arty Farty Half Term

Tuesday 1st June
11am to 4pm
£45 per person

Ages 8 and up

Learn how puppets work, create and decorate your own.  Write and film a short show featuring your puppet!  During this professionally led workshop you will:

  • Understand how different joins work.
  • Discover how to get the movement of your puppet just right.
  • Learn about famous puppet makers around the world. 
  • Design and create your very own puppet.
  • Use your puppet in a puppet show at the end of the day

Please bring lunch with you to enjoy in the studio or you can take a walk down the High Street where there are a couple of cafes to choose from.

Please note we have a one way system in and out of the studio for drop off and pick up. We will ask for a contactable number for the day from a guardian. We will be asking your children to use hand sanitiser and wash their hands during the day.

To book any of our workshops please book online via eventbrite.  Alternatively, please call or email: 07792 033 156 or

Please see more information on the people behind Arty Farty Retreat, our covid-19 policy and updates, and our refund policy.

If you feel your child would benefit from one of our workshops but can’t afford it, please contact us. We have a pay it forward scheme and would hate for anyone to miss out on the benefit of creativity because of financial issues. Equally if you are able to pay it forward for someone else to benefit from our workshops, please get in touch.
