Puppetry Workshop for Children

  • Saturday, February 11, 2023
  • 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
  • 10 Children’s Way, Pittsburgh, PA 15212

Visit the Children's Museum for a lively demonstration of Kuruma ningyo, or “puppets on wheels” by Koryu Nishikawa V, grand master of Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo Puppet Theater. Nishikawa’s unique technique has the puppeteers perform sitting atop a three-wheeled dolly. This event is open to all ages and will be held in the Studio.

Immediately following the demonstration, join Koryu Nishikawa V for a guided workshop where you will work with these traditional puppets and become the puppeteer. The Workshop is open to ages 5 and up, and is free with admission. Space is limited, so reserve your space at this link.
