Puppet-Making (Workshop)

Join Anaïs for a fun and simple puppet making workshop that will get you excited about bringing your own characters and concepts to life. Anaïs will teach you different techniques such as making a paper bag puppet and how to make finger puppets. What kind of puppet will you make? From tigers and fairies to cats and frogs, the only limit is your imagination. Create your own stories with your puppets and set off on some adventures! Anaïs is a puppeteer, actor and theatre creator. She comes from Belgium and has been living and working in Vancouver for four years now. Her favorite fields are Theatre for Young Audience (TYA) and Puppetry.


Venez rencontrer Anaïs dans un atelier ludique et simple de construction de marionnette qui vous permettra de donner vie à vos propres personnages. Anaïs vous apprendra plusieurs méthodes pour créer une marionnette en papier ou bien une marionnette à doigts. Quel genre de marionnette ferez-vous ? Un tigre, une princesse ou une grenouille, la seule limite est votre imagination. Créez une  histoire pour votre marionnette et vous voilà parti pour l’aventure ! Anaïs est marionnetiste, actrice et créatrice théatrale. Originaire de Belgique, elle vit maintenant à Vancouver ces quatre dernières années. Son domaine préféré est le théatre pour jeune public et l’art de la marionnette.
