Seóanna as Gaeilge freisin.
Whether it is a walk in workshop for a public event or a more focused workshop with a small group we aim to develop a good skill base, share the art of puppetry and have fun!
At Little Gem Puppets we are family friendly and have a lot of experience in working with children. We want to share the art of puppetry and invite others to enjoy it too.
We explore the world of puppetry through our shows and puppetry workshops.We also create custom puppets and videos for corporate branding.
Our shows are performed from a portable booth so we can perform anywhere. We encourage interaction from the audience and we hope to spark a light in their imagination. Our puppets are lively, colourful and love to meet new people.
Our workshops are aimed at developing a good skills base whilst having fun and passing on a love of puppetry.
We have produced award winning children's puppet films. You never know we could even be as big as The Muppets someday! We can also produce puppet panto to run throughout a short festival or event.
In the past we have made puppets for Disney, Universal Studios and Pokemon to name a few. Our current clients include libraries, museums, arts centres, heritage events, street festivals, family festivals, organizations who work as Gaeilge (through Irish), early years training faculties and companies who wish to use puppets as part of their marketing strategy.
