a puppeteer on the left is holding a blue bird puppet, touching a green rabbit soft toy held by a child on the right.

Le Petit Monde brings you a new puppet-making workshop based on the famous Aesop fable The Fox & The Crow! Translated into French and turned into a poem by the super famous poet Jean de La Fontaine in the 17th century, the fable is equally popular in Scotland and it is in France.

After a short introduction to the story, participants will make their own puppets out of old socks and then get to manipulate them. We will also have fun practising a few key French phrases from Tania’s own billingual version of the fable and re-enact the story together. Printed copies of the text will be handed out to take home.

This workshop is accessible to non-French speakers. All you need to bring is a sock (stripy ones are great!) and your imagination …

“What a very talented puppeteer! Super speaking voice as well and it was easy to follow all the French.” Primary school teacher, Arts Across Learning Festival
