At this workshop you’ll watch a puppet show, and then learn to make your own puppets.

Bring your puppet to the Hutt Winter Festival on Sat 18 August and be in the Puppet Parade alongside Hutt Winter Festival's Wild Arrival puppets.

The whānau friendly puppet show is about the problems caused by invasive weed species - especially Old Man's Beard and Japanese HoneySuckle. It's also the story about a friendship between a Kereru, a child and a Kohekohe tree.

Suitable for parents to attend with their children, 4-10 years, but also enjoyed by children younger and older.

Limit puppet show: 100 people
Limit workshop afterwards: 40 people including parents with pre-schoolers

Puppet show duration: 45 minutes
Workshop duration: 1 hour

Registration essential for the puppet-making workshop as numbers are limited.
