Objective: To create a simple bird-puppet and to participate in the performance.
Skills: Folding and gluing skills, BUT parents must be involved. No unsupervised children.
Target Audience: Families
In the puppet-making workshop, participants will be given material and instructions to create a bird. There will be colour pastels and colour pencils to colour these birds.
Workshop participants need to scan a QRCode to watch a video tutorial on their devices. Families are facilitated to be involved, and parents who want their phones within reach will need to assist and monitor their own young ones.
There WILL be facilitators there to manage crowd flow, help explain, distribute material and offer assistance, etc. To make things safe and simpler, no sharp tools will be used. Not even scissors.
