We have all seen puppets and puppeteers at work and play. However, what we do not know and would probably love to know is how to learn the art.

Brian Zimmerman offered that opportunity to 23 students of SK St Thomas as he began his session, The Wonderful World of Puppetry, and every student – and teacher – present there hung on to his every word and move.

Brian took them through the techniques of bringing puppets to life, the children tried their hand at manipulating the puppets they were given and the teachers enjoyed watching the children enjoying themselves.

Brian was in Kuching as a speaker in Bookaroo Children’s Literature Festival held at the Pustaka Negeri Library.
