Our Puppets

Our puppets are all handmade by us in the UK for our shows, workshops and projects. We use a variety of materials, and try to recycle and be sustainable wherever possible. 

If you would like to commission us to make you a puppet for your own show or simply for display, please contact us using the form and we'll do our best to bring your dreams to life!
