Choose from a huge array of colourful, shiny, fluffy, and inspirational bits and bobs and get creative! What will you make!?

Founded in 2002, Puppet-Stew aims to give ALL children and adults, irrespective of ability, ethnicity or background, the creative freedom to produce fun, experimental, crazy, inspiring and thought-provoking puppets and artwork, providing them with the impetus to use their innate creativity as a vibrant means of self-expression.
