Puppets in Exeter

I was very lucky to get the opportunity to sit in on some undergraduate puppetry sessions at Exeter University recently. Led by the brilliant Cariad  Astles, I got a real insight into performing with puppets and working out what makes a good performance and puppetry piece.

Really interesting, and extremely useful for a kids puppet show project I have got on the bubble… I managed to sketch some of the students rehearsing with their puppets, great body poses and faces. Here they are, and pictures of the puppets they were using.
