This has been a wonderful, transformative and creative course. Tony has taken us through a process of puppet making with sensitivity and expert guidance. He had a way of bringing forth magical inspiration that made us feel connected and supported as a group. This is an excellent course for anyone looking to connect with their creativity. It is an opportunity to experience the child-like power of getting lost in the artistic process and to learn how to pass this on to the children in your life. Ten out of Ten!
What a phenomenal course: it has re-invigorated, inspired and kick-started the maker inside of me, nourishing the spirit with story and the maker with practical skills, glueguns and glitter. It has been a joyful journey; expertly held and supported by knowledgeable and playful teachers. Creation Myth Puppets are making magic happen and keeping stories alive.
A truly wonderful course, Tony is an excellent facilitator and creates a fun and relaxed environment for learning, I feel inspired and am amazed by how much can be made in such a short time. Incredible!
A perfect course, not only for teachers and people involved in education. I think it goes beyond this, working with participants on all different levels bringing them into the present in a totally immersive way. The course takes participants into a journey in which they can feel safe to try out new things because they are fully supported by the director and the team. Collaborating, performing, learning many new skills: to sum it all up, its Transforming!
A fantastic and rare opportunity to sink deeply into the dream-like process of creating a show from scratch. A chance to reflect on my practice as an artist and how i work collaboratively. New and valuable perspective and renewed passion for flying the flag of creativity and supporting children to express their own creativity and imagination.
