The Puppets are Alright: The Maker’s Workshop – Bubble Gadgets 

Led by The Maker’s Lab Programme Manager Daniel Sim and Cycle 2022/2023 Maker, Marilyn Ang

Bubbles are one of the key explorations in The Maker’s Lab 2022/2023, and are prominently featured in The Puppets are Alright. 

In this workshop, participants will build a bubble mouth mechanism, to be fitted within a simple puppet head structure. Participants will be introduced to the exploration and discoveries from The Maker’s Lab 2022/2023 – soap solutions, bubble gadgets, hacking ready-made toys, and the intricacies of puppet structures and mechanisms.

Participants should expect to tinker with plastic parts and do simple woodworking

This workshop is led by Marilyn Ang, the maker of The Maker’s Lab 2022 cycle, and assisted by Daniel Sim, Programme Manager of The Maker’s Lab and a member of the Core Team of The Finger Players.


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. 

This workshop is supported by the Tote Board Arts Fund.
