Giant Puppets

For over 10 years DNA have made puppets of all shapes and sizes with many larger than life creations for carnivals, festivals and parades. Often DNA artists will work with a group of childdren, young people or families over a period of time as a residency to learn

  • construction techniques
  • decorative skills
  • large scale puppet maneuvering / manipulation
  • choreographed routines

During Puppet Up! Blackpool's Festival of Puppetry (1997 - 2006), DNA's Artistic Director co-ordinated many groups of children and young people with North West artists to create super-sized sculptures and figures.
