Our Workshops

We design and teach stages and workshops of construction and manipulation of any puppetry techniques (glove, marotte, muppet, rod, table top, shadow, object, string, etc.), with the duration and level desired, according to the participant’s age and the objectives to be achieved.
And we will teach them anywhere: Cultural, Educational, Social Centers, etc.
