Having worked with many different performers, directors and makers, I have developed a number of practical workshops to share what I have learnt and to further explore ideas and techniques.

Every workshop has been carefully planned but can be adapted to suit different levels of experience and time scales.


Micro Cinema Theatre

Live Camera and Performance

Exploring objects, puppets and the human body to discover a new type of cinema.


Nasty Puppetry

Contemporary Puppetry and Performance

Exploring the darker side by giving the puppet the space and power to dominate the stage.


Acting the Puppet

Simple Puppetry Manipulation Skills

Exploring the ways a puppet can walk, run and fall over, how it can apparently have feelings, reactions and even a sense of humour!


Bespoke Making Sessions

Design and build a head or figure that is expressive, workable and robust. Examples could include clay modelling, plaster casting, puppet jointing and internal structures.

How to book a workshop

Workshops are generally organised by theatres, educational institutions, drama schools or by individuals. These may be as part of a festival, an education program or a private invitation.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss hosting a workshop.
