Writing Shadows

Writing Shadows

Puppet making and myth writing workshop


Petra McQueen



The Quay,


Enter the world of shadows. During this one day workshop we will explore the possibilities that shadow puppets can bring to a story.

We will begin by looking at shadow puppets as characters.We will then work on a piece of writing, a short story or a reworking of a traditional tale. In the afternoon we will make shadow puppets that bring the writing to life. There will be the opportunity to try out the puppets with a shadow screen. By the end of the day you will have made at least one puppet to take away and have the beginnings of a story.


This exciting new course will take place at the Nottage Institute, in Wivenhoe. Starting at ten am and finishing at four pm, this day long course includes a tasty vegetarian lunch, as well as coffee and biscuits in the break. As all our classes and events are interactive, places are limited to twelve. This course costs £80. To book your place go to www.thewriterscompany.co.uk or contact us on 07913255442.
