Kay Yasugi from Pupperoos recenty ran a marionette operating workshop with Caroline Astell-Burt (London School of Puppetry) at Carleton Endowed Primary School in Skipton, Yorkshire UK. This 1 hour workshop was for Year 6 students (10-12 year olds), where they learned how to operate simple balloon marionettes through games and play. They also learned how to work the control of a short-string marionette. At the end of the workshop, they performed short routines with their puppets. The Carleton students also enjoyed watching 3 marionette shows inspired by fairytales, performed by students from the London School of Puppetry.
