The photo gallery category is where you will find images of puppets made by children in my workshops. Each post is from a different school with students ranging from Prep to grade 6. Photos are added to constantly, so please come back regularly. Some photos may also be shown on my Facebook Twitter Pinterest & Instagram pages.

“The children really enjoyed the story and the humour was very clever. VERY PROFESSIONAL. There was not a hitch in the performance – you could tell John had done this show many times but still really enjoyed presenting it! The students are now REALLY MOTIVATED to design and make their own puppets and theatres. It was very beneficial to see inside the puppet theatre and discuss all it’s features. THE CHILDREN WERE EXCITED TO SEE PHOTOS OF THEIR PUPPETS ON YOUR WEBSITE. 10/10

    Dear John,
    We loved our puppets. They were terrific! Thank you for helping us make them. Also, thank you for your funny puppet show. We loved being squirted with water from Jason.

    Dear John,

    My daughter Serena loved the puppet workshop run at Footscray West. She was very happy to see her creation on line, along with all her friends puppets. She also loved the show you put on.

    Kind regards

    Dear John,

    Thank you SO much for the amazing puppet workshops yesterday. You helped us to create some fantastic puppets in such an EASY way. You were professional and worked incredibly well with the kids so they could be successful in making a special puppet.

    We also thoroughly enjoyed your show a couple of weeks earlier. It was so entertaining with your funny and interesting characters. We also loved your puppet theatre and learning about how you made it. Some of the students loved it so much they came to school the next day having made their own theatre!

    Love your work and will definitely be recommending you!

    Thanks again!
