Yugen Puppet Company


As well as free-lance work and my own productions, I have run many workshops on puppetry for schools and Early Years.

I have worked with The National Theatre of Scotland, East Lothian Council, Aberdeenshire Council, Arts Fife, Inverclyde Council and S.P.E.L.L. in South Lanarkshire, who support nurseries, playgroups and toddler groups.

In 2014 I did a series of shadow puppet workshops for Aberdeenshire Council with S3 pupils to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.

I can deliver workshops on puppet making, puppet story telling, manipulation, and puppet performance and production. I also offer CPDs for teachers and have run an introduction to puppetry course for early years play leaders. Making skills include giant willow puppet making and wood carving. My speciality is shadow puppet workshops.
