Thanks to the hundreds of creative kids, and their grown ups, who attended this years Puppet Animation Festival across Scotland. As usual, your creativity and imaginations were fabulous! I shall post some pics on our facebook page, and hope to see  you all again next year!


Ahhh what a great summer we all had, meeting you and seeing all your fabulous creations!

Glastonbury, WOMAD, Clifftop Reggae festival, Hermonstival, Doune the Rabbit Hole and Dance Camp Wales...you were all amazing! Keep those imaginations alive an wild, and see you all next year! x


This autumn I will be collaborating with Christopher May, my creative partner and dragon builder extraordinaire, in the creation of a giant walking dragon puppet which we will be touring the festival circuit with. (funding pending!)

We are looking for investors to finish the project.

If you would like to have your very own dragon or other large installation built for your festival, do get in touch, as if 'you can dream it, we can build it!'


Check out the 'DRAGON' link  and please get in touch for more details.


Please note, Puppet-Stew do not  currently have any touring puppet shows, as we are focusing on the workshop side of things just now. But if you get in touch, I may be able to help you find a touring puppeteer.


Puppet-Stew can also co-ordinate bookings for puppet shows, art workshops and kids entertainment at festivals and major events. So get in touch and we can work out a FAB line up for your event!


Have fun looking through the site and if you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me.
