At this workshop participants will learn how Puppet Making and Art Therapy were incorporated to serve different populations; research that supports the program; and how we are developing tools to evaluate it for funders.

Last Chance to Book a Puppets on the Go Crate Rental!
We are phasing out our Puppets on the Go crate program as we are currently working towards a cost effective online platform for a DIY learning experience that can reach people globally.  This will be your last chance to book a crate program for the 2018-19 school year - Calgary only.

Crates contain all the components for students to create their own puppets and perform a show. Clear instructions, samples and patterns make this a user-friendly experience for teachers.

There are four crates to choose from - only $120 for a three week rental!

  • Shadow Puppets Learn about Community (K-2)
  • Rod Puppets Look into Alberta History (Grades 3-4)
