Puppets and Masks

I offer practical workshops on puppets and masks for students and practitioners of diverse ages and backgrounds. Whether training future facilitators or engaging first-time participants, in one-off or ongoing sessions, I tailor creative activities to the given social context.

The imagination is unleashed through scenographic techniques, such as papier-mache mask-work, shadow puppetry, and stop-motion animation, propelling participants to make their own worlds of poetic imagery, where the objects take on an enchanting life of their own.
