What you'll do

Hello! I'm a Jewish-Australian puppeteer living in Berlin, Germany. I make my living in this cultural melting pot working with puppets for both kids & adults.

I will introduce you to some of my favourite puppets & tell you some stories about travelling the world and doing shows in theatres, circus & even in the jungle!

Together we are going to make super cool holiday puppets from recycled materials. We will make special Christmas elves and Hanukkah puppets celebrating the festival of lights.

Your brand new puppet friend will make a great gift for Christmas or Hanukkah or you can create your very own puppet show for your family during the holidays. :)

This workshop can also be adapted for grown ups! I have a lot of experience with fun & engaging content for adults.
Other things to note
The bigger the screen, the easier it will be to see details. Make sure you can also hear the audio, headphones usually work best. Also, make sure you have a good internet connection.

What a fantastic experience! What’s great is that we could use materials from around the house. She was able to customize how to make the puppets based on what we had. She was great with kids, who had many comments in many questions. We loved also seeing her puppets and hearing more about her life. I’d highly recommend this for any families.

She went through each step patiently and with humor and fun, and everyone's puppets came out lovely! Her experience was inspiring and professional, everyone in our group of 10 enjoyed it immensely. 5 + stars!
