Trash-Hack is a workshop in re-purposing industrial and domestic junk to create and animate instant puppet creations, suitable for any level of experience. Be prepared to stretch your imagination, dare to fail, pull it apart and build another.
Trash Hack is great for anyone wishing to gain confidence or new perspectives in accessing puppetry and making it part of their skillset. It is ideal for anyone running workshops, teaching lessons or leading rehearsal or research activities with a limited budget.
All workshop materials will be provided.
