Wesley Institute Puppetry Secondment Project

A Puppetry Secondment Project run by Pupperoos with a small group of students from Wesley Institute, Sydney. The project involved developing Pupperoos' solo show, "The Whirlwind", as well as introducing the students to puppetry: making various puppets, performing with puppets and showcasing the work achieved over the 8 sessions. The project also aimed to equip the students with knowledge and skills in puppetry that can be applied for future work in their own fields of drama/dance.

What people have said:

“The workshop was fantastic. All students were engaged.” – Bryce Walker, Teacher at Glebe Public School, Sydney

“I adored how we covered the basics of each type of puppet, from shadow, rod and marionette, and how we were each given the chance to input our ideas into the creative process of building a dramatic piece. I looked forward to every class – just to have a moment to craft the imagination and bring it to life.” – Juliana Purnell, Drama Student from Wesley Institute Puppetry Secondment Project, Sydney

Pupperoos is able to provide workshops for schools and children of all ages. For more information on workshops, please contact Kay at
