Learn the old and nearly forgotten craft of carving a stringed marionette puppet straight from a log. You'll spend three days designing, carving and bringing to life a timeless companion for people of all ages to enjoy, using traditional tools such as a small axe and a range of whittling knives.

There are only a handful of people making puppets this way throughout the world, so join professional wood carver and craftsman, Jeff Donne to learn the pleasures of slow carving and breathing new life into an old craft and a new hand carved friend.

This full three day event is catered with lunch and endless cups of tea and coffee.

Set at the beautiful Clifton School of Arts, a historic landmark building, superbly positioned just south of the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge. With parking just across the road.

This Master class requires no wood carving skills, but is taught by a Master in his field. Jeff Donne's ability to teach this art of slow carving is a wonderful experience.
