I would be interested in talking more with you about a workshop that culminates in a performance. That is actually one of the things I do a lot as a Teaching Artist with participants of all ages and skill levels.
When possible, I like to use the types of puppets that are best suited to the script, resources, and interest/talent of the participants. I teach beginner and novice level puppetry of all 5 traditional forms of puppetry, combination forms, and some modern forms that don’t quite fall under these categories. I do Master Level puppetry coaching for performance.
