Bow Families: Puppet making with Julie Vermeille

Sunday 25th September 2022 , 11:00am to 1:00pm

For September’s Bow Families workshop, illustrator and art educator Julie Vermeille will be showing us how to make our very own 3-D string puppets out of coloured card. 

To kick things off, Julie will be guiding us through the basic techniques of sketching, tracing, and cutting out shapes from coloured card. You’ll then have access to a range of coloured pens, pencils, pastels, charcoal, magazine, newspaper clippings, and other fun craft materials to decorate your puppets, before learning how to bring them to life by making them move. 

This event is an inclusive, friendly environment which is accessible to all abilities and age groups. 

Bow Families is our series of free, drop-in family art workshops that take place on the last Sunday of every month in the Bow Arts Courtyard.
