Puppet Popup Dragon

WP Puppet Theatre is proud to present: Puppet Pop Up – Dragons! – a family friendly puppet-making workshop at the Chinese Cultural Centre.

Inspired by the Chinese astrological calendar and the upcoming Chinese New Year, we will be making the most powerful creature of the Zodiac signs: Dragons! Our rod puppets are made from card stock paper and wood. Learn how to create magnificent dragons, animate them flying through the air, twisting and twirling, to music. Let’s see what each dragon, a symbol of strength, success, and good fortune can do!

Materials and step by step instructions are provided. Suitable for ages 5+.
