Design and Technology – Puppet Making

This term in Design and Technology we have been making hand puppets. We started by exploring a range of puppets and discussing their features and what materials they are made from. In our second lesson we explored ways of joining material. Using the template provided, we worked with fabric to create, make and decorate a finger puppet. We then moved on to learn different sewing techniques that we could use when making our final piece. We learnt to do a running stitch, over stitch and sew on a button. In our final lessons we designed our own hand puppet using the skills we had learnt and then carefully followed our design to create our hand puppet.
