Making puppets and breathing life into them in an
interactive workshop for children (5 – 9 years olds)

In this magical winter workshop we will explore the world of puppetry. Children will get the chance to create heroes and make adventures in their own imaginative world full of snow using only their hands and old newspaper. In this workshop they will make their own little snow animals and learn how to make them magically come to life, move and dance together! The session will end with an unexpected snowstorm that blows the story and all the puppets away, but first invites everyone for a fun snow dance!

About the workshop leader

Nina van der Mark

With a background in visual theatre and puppetry and with a fascination for public spaces, her work focuses on touch; the physical empathy that object manipulation brings, the excitement of physical games and the absurdness of creating images and installations in public spaces. She loves playing with breathing life into inanimate objects, creating visual invitations to play, move and to connect story, image and space.


“Once you are real you can’t become unreal again. It lasts for always.”
― Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit
