Curious School of Puppetry is investigatory and inspirational. It is grounded in the notion of learning through direct experience from masters of the art.


Curious School of Puppetry offers those with an interest in operating and producing work with puppets a physical understanding of technique, craft and design. Professional puppeteers and directors provide high quality training and nurture students as they discover and develop their own skills.


Curious School of Puppetry provides a platform for the long-term development of excellence in puppetry performance in Britain. The school aims to grow talent in the service of this wonderful form, and foster individual and collective relationships between existing and emerging generations of artist-puppeteers.
