Hi! I am Alison

Creative life story work logo

I’m a puppeteer - I love making puppets and playing with them. I live in a messy house full of useful bits and pieces that I’ve collected on my travels.

Being a puppeteer is great because you get to do lots of different activities - like making puppets; creating stories; performing shows and playing with amazing children, like you!

What will we do together in our All About Me Creative Experience sessions?

We will be thinking about things such as:

  • Who are you?
  • What are your favourite things?
  • How do you feel?
  • Who is in your life?
  • Who do you live with?
  • What plans do you have for the future?

These sessions are all to do with things that are important to you. You will have the chance to create some unique things to keep like caterpillar puppets and create a home for them in a special tree stump.

We will explore our caterpillar’s stories; find out who is in their lives and perhaps discover more about ourselves along the way.

Together we’ll learn how to express thoughts and feelings through puppetry, bringing our puppet characters to life!

Where will your caterpillars end up? Well, that’s up to you...

You can join in as much or as little as you feel comfortable. There will be other children too, as well as your trusted adult, who you can share your ideas with. You can make, create, explore and share as much or as little as you like.

Our sessions will be relaxed and playful, (and maybe a bit messy too as we get creative!).

I am really looking forward to meeting you and learning more about you, your ideas and your caterpillars. 

My sessions will be suitable for children and young people aged 5 – 10.

See you soon!
