Puppet Planet - Puppet Specialist in Battersea
Puppet Planet is an independent puppet shop and puppeteering workshop in Battersea, South West London. Probably the most niche business you've ever come across (we'd love to hear of any shop more specialist than this if you know of any!), Puppet Planet is exactly what the name suggests; a world of puppets, puppet paraphernalia and associated events and accessories.
There is a magical, awe-inspiring feel to Puppet Planet; the moment you step through the door you're confronted at every turn by what must be the largest congregation of puppets anywhere in the country. Expect everything from traditional, vintage and collectors' puppets, to modern, children's toys and t.v. puppet celebrities.
By far the most intriguing part of Puppet Planet is Lesley, the owner, who has been working with puppets most of her life. Whether she's been making them for T.V. shows and master puppeteers, performing with them at children's parties and puppeteering events, or simply collecting them for her own satisfaction, Lesley is an authority in the genre with a passion for teaching people about, and having fun with, puppets.
Lesley runs regular puppet making workshops and offers puppeteering for events; where you can book a themed puppet show for your parties and get togethers. Suitable for all ages, both workshops and parties act as an engaging and fascinating dive into a world rarely seen in modern culture.
Lesley's drama workshops focus on how to use puppets and masks to create dramatic, comedic and engaging stories; an act that has been popular in Western Europe since at least Roman times, where puppets were used for social and political commentary to great effect.
An educational and entertaining art form, you'll be surprised at what there is to learn and how transferable the skills developed can be to modern life... intrigued? Pop into the shop for a chat or contact Lesley today to find out more!
Please phone the shop before visiting as parties, workshops and other events may affect normal opening times!
