Summer of Smiles – Shadow Puppets Workshop

Free Creative Craft Hour as part of Summer of Smiles.

Delivered in partnership with Theatr Iolo, with funding from Cardiff Council as part of the Summer of Smiles programme, Grange Pavilion proudly presents a free one hour craft session for children aged 6-11 years.

During this session, children will design their own shadow puppet before using paper and other materials to bring their design to life. Once they have made their puppets, there will be an area to try them out, before taking them home to show the rest of the family.

The sessions will be run in English and are suitable for children aged 6-11 years old. If your child has any access requirements, please contact and we will do our best to make adjustments so your child can take part.

Spaces are limited to 10 children. Booking is essential.  Click here to access the booking page:

Adults must stay for the sessions as the puppets can involve some fiddly cutting and children may need some help.

Theatr Iolo is the leading Welsh children’s theatre company and has been delivering performances and workshops to babies, children, teenagers, parents, pupils and teachers across Wales, the UK and internationally for over 30 years.
