With so many different kinds of puppets and ideas out there, the possibilities are endless for what you can make. Many people from the Eastern Shore have probably seen or heard about our puppets for the past year’s Musquodoboit Harbour parades!

We are heading into another year with more puppet ideas in the works.


Participants will learn about:DSC01171 copy

  • Giant puppet designs
  • Single and multi-person puppets
  • Giant puppet manipulation

Part 1 will introduce participants to giant puppet designs and construction techniques. The group will then collaborate on a puppet design and begin construction.

Part 2 will complete the construction and we will introduce the participants to puppet manipulation and personification.

The final part of the workshop will be to use the puppet as part of the Deanery Project float in the Musquodoboit Harbour Summer Parade (date TBA).
