In an effort to revive this dying artform, MummyKnowsBest in association with Craft Canvas brings you the Puppet Making Workshop in Bangalore on Nov 10th at Tharangini in Sadashivnagar and Nov 11 at Purva Fountainsquare in Marathahalli. Join us for a demonstration from the artists on puppet making, participate by
making a small lamp that you can take home for Diwali, and engage all your senses in a puppet show afterwards. Children above 6 and adults welcome. Click here for details, or call +91 99807 29102, +91 8306 066600.
