With the support of Renaissane Sackville, Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre offered a

children’s puppet making and performance workshop from July 29 to August 2, 2014 with artist

Barbara Safran de Niverville. The weeklong workshop was offered free of charge and took place at

7 Lorne Street with a public performance on the final day. The sessions ran from 1:00pm to 4:00pm

daily. Youth designed and built their own puppets that they could take home with them. The final

performance was staged three times to new audiences on Friday afternoon. The program was a huge

success, with children and their guardians dropping in and leaving with amazing handmade puppets

all week long. Designed for younger children, but appealing to all ages, we saw participants range

from 2 years old and up, with parents and guardians got into the spirit too!
