Gyre & Gimble: Hartlepool Monkey, Free Puppetry Workshop Opportunity- 20 October.

Hello all

In October, Gyre & Gimble and Fuel will be bringing The Hartlepool Monkey to the Centre for a week-long run in the Weston Studio. You can find more about the show here:


We would like to invite you to join us on Friday 20 October at 11am, for a free 2- hour workshop with the company in the Studio.


Gyre & Gimble introduction to Puppetry – for students and early career artists.


The workshop will include techniques in; making a chimp puppet; bringing it to life to express various emotional states, and acting with the puppet. Participants will learn the 3 principles of puppetry -  breath, weight and focus. Participants will also learn ‘working as one’ in a collective.

Here's a video of one of these workshops in action. 

Please let me know if you would like to join us by getting in touch on by October 2nd.

(There are only 20 places, so we will allocate on a first come, first served basis on my return from annual leave)

Please also share this with others whom you think would enjoy the workshop too.


With best wishes
