We only ever work in small groups so enrol and enjoy individual attention, make progress and have fun.  The most exciting thing about this kind of puppet is that it is possible to perform solo work and make highly portable shows for everything from cabaret to birthday parties. Some students come to us because others want to perform for children, some want to work in education, others just want to make people laugh and others want to perform for adults.
