Youth Education

Puppetry is an amazing means of encouraging expression in children, developing confidence, literacy, hand/eye coordination, team building and delving into the imagination.

Sandglass works with your school or program to customize workshops, residencies or other events!



A two hour session in which we construct a simple puppet that is appropriate for the age group we are working with (ie. k-3: Sock puppets 4-up Marionettes or rod puppets)
and show basic manipulation techniques.  Each participant gets to take their hand-made puppet home.





A workshop series which explores the adventure of creating a puppet show,
including puppet and set building, rehearsal and a final performance. Students will engage in team-building activities, develop performative skills, and learn how to manipulate a puppet. We can customize the story to support the curriculum being studied in the classroom.
