Online Puppetry Courses

Thank you for visiting our online and virtual puppetry school page. We are delighted to offer many of our puppetry courses online to both groups and individuals! 

Our range of online puppetry and related crafts courses can be taken from anywhere in the world. 

They are fun, flexible and offer a full puppetry workshop experience from the comfort of your own location.

 

Our online puppetry workshops are taught primarily by the five star, multi award winning Directors and founders of PuppetSoup, who hold Honours Degrees specifically in Puppetry and have years of experience in both performing and teaching puppetry. We also occasionally offer courses from a range of other experienced and international puppetry tutors in special guest workshops.

Individual Online Puppetry Course Bookings

You will find both puppet making and puppetry performance workshops available through our online learning and training opportunities. We offer you the chance to join affordable, professional and friendly small group adult classes or you are welcome to enquire about a bespoke private course if you wish to develop your creative practice or re-skill in puppetry.

Group Online Workshop Bookings

If you are booking for your group then Puppetry Courses are available to be delivered online for adults, children, school groups, community groups and educational projects.  We provide classes online for all levels of puppeteers from complete beginners to experienced professionals.

Making online workshops engaging

All of our virtual puppetry courses, workshops, classes and lessons are delivered live online so that you can work with and get to know experienced and knowledgeable puppeteers in a small, friendly group, or individually if you prefer.  Our sessions are never pre-recorded so this ensures you can learn at a pace that suits you and ask questions and interact with your tutors and group colleagues. We ensure that your online puppetry course, class or workshop is delivered in staged and manageable lessons that prevent screen fatigue, whilst ensuring you learn everything you need to know, in the same way as face to face puppetry courses.

We are experienced providers of online courses and use blended learning techniques which allows courses to be varied, fun and engaging.

Virtual Events, Lectures and Festivals

We are available to offer talks and discussions at online events such as online puppetry festivals, seminars (or webinars) and also can offer lectures for universities remotely. 

We would warmly welcome you to our online puppetry courses wherever you are in the world!

Please do get in touch to let us know what you would like to learn, or browse through our upcoming group workshops to book your place on a course!
