Puppetry Demonstration Workshop

Our touring companies are delighted to have the chance to share their skills with the communities they visit. We offer a standard workshop to presenters who are bringing a Mermaid production to their venue, which takes place on stage and allows children or adults to learn the basics of Mermaid’s unique style of puppetry in a hands-on setting.
