Project Happiness Puppet
One of my recent experiences with puppetry has involved building a large-scale puppet with a group of young adults from Haverfordwest Youth Club. Through creative discussions, together we designed a 12ft tall carnival puppet based around the subject of well-being. Over a series of sessions, they learnt a variety of skills including sewing, sculpting and puppeteering. Once completed they went on to win the walking section in Haverfordwest carnival. Not only did this give the group a great sense of pride, it also built up their confidence to continue to work on creative projects.
