The Maker’s Workshop: Messing with Modularity

Application for this workshop is now closed. Please follow us at @fingerplayers to be updated on upcoming workshops.

Typically, a puppet design is so unique that makes it specific to one character. This tends to generate an excess of puppets that cannot be reused. Therefore, in The Maker’s Lab 2021, we developed modular puppet structures that can form the foundation for different designs to emerge.

In this two-day workshop, we invite participants to mess around with these modular puppet structures. Participants will be guided to make your own modular structures, experiment with various structural forms and eventually create your own large puppet.

This workshop is led by Loo An Ni, the maker of The Maker’s Lab 2021 cycle, and assisted by Daniel Sim, Programme Manager of The Maker’s Lab and a member of the Core Team of The Finger Players.

Refer to An Ni’s monthly journal entries during The Maker’s Lab for more information.


Due to the nature of this workshop, we will be checking with potential participants their experience in using machinery and tools before confirming their registration. Participants will then be invited to make payment to confirm their spot. 

The Maker’s Project is supported by the Tote Board Arts Fund.
