Puppetry at Walker Art Gallery Liverpool

Adam Bennett of DNA spent the day yesterday at the Walker Art Gallery with a mixed age group of children and adults making puppets and then having fun learning how to perform with them. Here are some photos of their creations



Each 90 minute session wasn’t much time to make a puppet from scratch and learn how to perform with them. We used a simple rod puppet design that gave a working puppet quickly.


The characters were based on Greek Mythology. There were a few Medusas, Zeus, some Poseidons, Athena, Artemis and a few “random villagers/townspeople” for the gods and monsters to perform simple scenes with.


Adults and children alike enjoyed the creativity of making and the joy of playing with their creations.
