Puppet Pop Ups


What are Puppet Pop-Ups?

Puppet Pop Up wordmarkPuppet Pop-Ups are puppet making workshops or events lead by WP Puppet Theatre that Pop Up online or in-person. The Puppet Pop-Ups can be pre-registered, drop-by or online DIY. In-person events are held throughout Calgary, Alberta (and the surrounding Calgary area). These Puppet Pop-Up workshops typically happen monthly, with a different theme each time. We will make puppets and do some dramatic sharing and performing too!

These puppet pop-up workshops actively promote all family members—youngsters and elders alike—in creating art and drama together. We create these projects with the intent that individuals of all ages will participate, and  scale the projects so that everyone can make something. We encourage everyone from age  four and up to join us! Please note that children and teens must participate with an adult.

WP Puppet Theatre subscribes to the Reggio Emilia education philosophy, which values children as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential, and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it.
