Belonging – Pilot Workshops with Refugees

Over the past four weeks we have been delivering puppet making and storytelling workshops at The Red Cross Centre Jelling to asylum seekers. Using mixed materials to construct the form and paper to decorate the group created self portrait puppets and shared their stories of Belonging.

Whilst some felt there puppets belonged at a party or coaching boxing at a gym, others felt they did not belong anywhere.

This process was a pilot project for the workshops we will deliver as part of our 2020 project Belonging. If you would like to take part in a future workshop, please write to
