Our adult Zoom Puppetry Courses & Classes run every couple of months, so keep your eye on the PP socials and don't miss out!

We run Beginners courses suitable for anyone who has barely touched a Puppet, to those with experience already - through to Intermediate and Advanced.

Class sizes are limited and small, to ensure you gain maximum results from your learning and Puppetry.

By the end of the course, you will have made new friends, had expert advice, and become part of our ever growing community... 'The Parker Puppetry Army' of emerging Puppeteers.

With one of our expert Puppeteachers, you will be guided through our Hand & Rod Syllabus, and learn and perform our bespoke exercises with constructive feedback.

The 'Avenue' syllabus that has been created for Parker Puppetry, has been created to have class focussing on a different element of the skill, from Basic Positioning and Lip Sync Techniques, to Expression, Singing Sync, Character Voice's, Rod Work, Manipulation, Filming Green Screen... and SO MUCH MORE!

Parker Puppetry SEND Workshops

SEND WORKSHOPS

We are so passionate about making Puppetry and Puppeteering inclusive for all - and our SEND Workshops are so popular!

All of our Puppeteachers have vast experience in working with groups that have special educational needs, and disabilities - and we ensure everyone feels involved and gets the utmost out of our Puppetry Workshops, no matter the disability.

Puppetry is not only engaging, encouraging communication and imagination - benefits also include:

Motor Skills
Confidence
Coordination
Creativity

Groups will ‘Meet & Greet’ our characters, as well as learning how to operate and create a character of their very own with our Parker Puppetry Puppets!

"Parker Puppetry is a fantastic company! We have students aged from 12 through to 25 and every single one of them thoroughly enjoyed their workshops with Parker Puppetry. New skills that are needed more in the performance industry these days, taught by teachers at the top of their game, who make it extremely fun! The energy is infectious!!! Fantastic as group sessions- everyone is fully engaged and all get their chance for personal feedback. We highly recommend you booking classes with Parker Puppetry!t
