Sock Puppet Workshop for Kids

Creative fun with puppeteer and puppet maker Alex Hindmarsh as part of Lasta 2024.

Children aged 5yrs+ will make their very own sock puppets in this wonderful workshop with Puppeteer and Puppet Maker Alex Hindmarsh. With colourful socks, googly eyes and fun decorations, these puppets are a great introduction to puppetry and a big hit with young children. All materials will be provided. 

The workshop also includes an introduction to puppetry techniques as the kids enjoy bringing their new creations to life using  skills such as Entrances and Exits, Height and Positioning, Movement and Lip Sync. This workshop will have you talking to your hand in no time!

Lasta 2024

Lasta/Young Curators’ Festival 2024: A National Arts Festival by Young People for Young People which takes place between Tuesday 4th – Sunday 9th June 2024.

The Lasta Festival, based on a project originally conceived and delivered by Backstage Theatre in Longford and now in its third year, has blossomed to include venues and individual curators nationwide, and an expanding programme of exciting, multidisciplinary work.  In an innovative and exciting approach to programming, 19 young curators have been engaged by seven regional venues to programme a festival of work for young people nationwide.

Under the guidance of theatre artist Maisie Lee, these young people will work collaboratively to deliver an ambitious line up of work.  Featuring multiple disciplines and reflecting the diversity of modern Ireland, this festival offers a unique opportunity to develop our future arts programmers and producers. The line-up for this year’s festival will feature theatre, music, comedy, dance, film, photography and experiential moments promising a fresh, fun, and exciting festival.

The seven regional venues involved in the initiative are Backstage Theatre (Longford) www.backstage.ie Dunamaise Arts Centre (Portlaoise) www.dunamaise.ie glór (Ennis) www.glor.ie An Grianán (Letterkenny) www.angrianan.com The Lime Tree Theatre (Limerick) www.limetreetheatre.ie Siamsa Tíre (Tralee) www.siamsatire.com and Town Hall Theatre (Galway) www.tht.ie
