Trash Puppets Workshop by Trash Puppets

In our workshops, participants of all ages create their very own, one-of-a-kind working puppet, made completely out of recycled materials. No glue or paint required!

Here's how we roll at Trash Puppets:

We send out our Trash Leaders to facilitate each workshop, which generally runs for 2hrs. We're flexible with timing if that doesn't fit within your timetable. Our team brings tape, scissors, puppets for demonstration etc. We can also provide the 'trash'; but we find it's a more holistic experience for the kids if they collect recyclables from home.  To make it easy we have a 'collection request' hand out to send home to parents. On the day of your workshops, our team arrives early to vet the 'trash' collection and ensure it's all clean and safe to use. Then we lead students in two hours of creative play, with a sustainability tilt.

Trash Puppets believe that fostering creativity is key to a happy, healthy planet. Through our playful workshops, Trash Puppets gets participants thinking and talking about waste reduction, recycling right, and imagining something new from discarded materials.
