My school bought a Puppetbox couple of months ago. They have been used so much, the students have loved them and after a Puppetbox workshop with Sophie and Annie last week have developed skills and a huge respect for the discipline... I can't recommend the box or the workshops enough. GCSE and A-level students are all now eager to use puppetry as part of their devising projects. I now see these as an essential bit of kit for a rehearsal room or class room, particularly with the prevalence of puppetry in modern theatre production of all genres- possibly even more useful than a set of masks.

We have designed an education pack that you receive when you buy a PuppetBox set, or you can buy one it's own. The pack includes warm-ups, puppetry exercises, example lesson plans and other tips & tricks.
