These workshops helped enormously the children and families who took part in these projects. Their needs spinning from emotional and psychological issues to children from the autistic spectrum. Marta also run puppet making clubs for KS1 and KS2 children as an after school activity. Children created different puppets to act out characters from children’s books practicing over a period of 20 sessions to put up a puppet show in the school at the end of term.
