Following the success of the ‘Creating Puppets for Plays’ workshops in Sydney for the War Horse Australia Arts Learning Programme, Kay Yasugi from Pupperoos was invited to run a puppet making workshop in Brisbane at Griffith University in July. The group learned how to work with cane and together they created a variety of beautiful and inventive puppets (one of which consisted of a cane horse head and blinking eyes made from black socks!). The puppets themselves were inspired by the monologue “Loyal Creatures”, written by Australian author Morris Gleitzman, which gives unique insight into how Australian soldiers and horses were involved in World War One.
