Object Theatre … an introduction

UK puppeteer, director and performer Rene Baker leads a one-day practical workshop in object theatre.

Working with everyday objects, participants will explore the language and symbolism of objects, develop characters based on their qualities, turn objects into puppets and learn simple techniques for bringing them to life. By the end of the day you’ll never look at a washing up sponge or screwdriver in the same way again!

Leading UK puppeteer, director and performer Rene Baker has created a series of one-day practical and playful workshops and is taking them all across Scotland to help introduce participants to the expressive possibilities of puppets and objects.
