Puppetry Direction

I have worked as Puppetry Director on numerous productions including Nature Elly for Barmpot Theatre.

The List – “The puppetry is both well conceived and inventively done”.

Workshops and Consultations

I've led many bespoke puppetry workshops for adults and children, as well as acting as puppet consultant on productions including small scale productions and international Operas.

 

I'd be delighted to chat to you about your project or workshop needs, from concept to delivery.
