Open Courses

Open Courses are a general programme open to all adults and offer new and innovative possibilities for puppetry in a variety of contexts. Our playtimes, summer schools, workshops and other short courses give anyone an easy way to experience what it means to study with the LSP. There are many of these courses run throughout the year.
