Our director Mervyn Millar is available to run professional and higher-education level workshops in puppetry technique or puppet design. His unique experiences making theatre in different disciplines and at different scales means that he is also able to run sessions for writers, designers or other professionals to open and expand their approach to making theatre.
He has run professional development workshops and teaching sessions for many organisations including the Curious School of Puppetry, London International Mime Festival, Puppet Animation Scotland, The Arvon Foundation (Writing and Puppetry), The National Theatre, Theatre Royal Plymouth, RADA, Living Pictures, The Royal Court Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company and The Young Vic. In 2017 he was a guest artist at the O'Neill National Puppetry Conference in the USA, and in 2018 he will lead a workshop at the 3rd Deutsche Figurentheaterkonferenz in Northeim.
In a higher education context he has contributed as a workshop leader or specialist to MA and BA programmes at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Central St Martin's School of Art, The University of East Anglia, Birmingham School of Speech & Drama, The London College of Fashion, The Musical Theatre Academy, and St Mary's University College.
