LL6: Jolputul puppet workshop

As part of their latest endeavour, Longitude Latitude 6 (LL6) is bringing to the limelight Jolputul Puppet, a group that holds workshops that teach children skills to make handmade puppets.

During the two workshops they have planned, children will be taught to make puppets out of everyday objects ranging from ice-cream wrappers to plastic spoons, pencils as well as plastic balls.

Jolputul Puppet was founded in 2005 and initially held informal performances and workshops. As the demand for their shows grew, they took on a full-time role.

Shahriar Shaon, one of the founders of Jolputul Puppet, stated that there is an environmental angle to it since children recycle daily household items to make these puppets.

This workshop is part of a four-month long event titled "LL6." LL6 is an open space that encourages various forms of creative expression and features artists from different backgrounds. Curated by Shehzad Chowdhury, they are open from 2pm to 9pm everyday at Bay’s Bellavista, Road 11, Block C, Banani. The Dhaka Tribune is a media partner for the event.

The workshop is divided into two sections, detailed as follows:

First segment

Time: 10:30am to 1:30pm

Open for children in the 4-7 year age bracket. Children are requested to bring material such as plastic spoons, plates, balls and wooden sticks.

Second segment

Time: 2:30pm – 5:30pm

Open for children in the 7-15 year age bracket. Children are requested to bring material such as plastic spoons, plates, balls, wooden sticks as well as coloured papers, colourful pieces of cloth and fabric beads.

Adults are allowed to participate in both sessions.
