ALIENS OF THE ART WORLD PRESENT - Alien Puppet Workshop

Do you relate to feeling alien? Want your inner alien to take form?

Come join us and create your own puppet inspired by your inner alien!


When an alien is in a human space it is a freak to be pinned up and labelled like a butterfly, but an alien on their own planet is an individual, one facet of a wonderfully strange world. Our world, our spaceship, our home contains all manner of wonders, large and small, each alien bringing their own experiences to build our conglomeration of glory.

Learn how to:
Put together a puppet
Basic sewing
Transform found materials into new creations
Turn fabrics/2D materials into structural design elements.

Paper Mache puppet heads
All recycled and upcycled materials! 

You will have the opportunity to create and take home an alternative or true form of your being! A fun explorative, not taken too seriously (but wicked outcomes) workshop that is accessible for all!


Drop in sessions from:
10.30am - 2pm
4pm - 7.30pm

This workshop is a fundraiser. We suggest a donation of £5, or however much or little you would like to give. All proceeds will go towards the ‘Aliens of the Art World’ exhibition: Centrespace Gallery 28th March – 5th April.

We are a group of queer female, non-binary and trans folk specialising in: installation, props, costume, sculpture, paint, poetry, filmmaking and performance art.

The puppets created at the workshop will have the opportunity to feature within the exhibition, if you so wish.
