Puppets Design

During our Design and Technology lessons, we took inspiration from our Alice in Wonderland literacy characters in designing working string puppets.  We first created our own design books using our paper folding skills.  We then worked on all aspects of our design, from eyes to limbs, costumes to colours.

Once designed, we sculptured our puppet heads out of clay, wrapped them in clingfilm and covered them in papier mache.

When the heads had dried out, we sliced them in half, removed the clay, and glued the now hollow heads back together.

We created our puppet bodies and attached the heads. 

We are all really pleased with the strange,  bizarre , and sometimes creepy personalities our puppets have.  They fit really well into the odd world of Wonderland.
