Holiday fun: puppet party

Puppet party

This event is now in the past.

Little people with big things to share are invited to come down to State Library where every child can be an artist, author, storyteller and performer.

In 2016 State Library is exploring the themes of identity and belonging, and this summer holiday we have pulled together a talented team to share puppet workshops, interactive performances and art-making activities celebrating the ideas and imaginations of the smallest members of the SLQ community.

So grab your friends and family and join the free holiday fun at SLQ.

Please note, children must be accompanied by an adult to all activities unless otherwise specified.
