Latest Puppet ideas, Prototypes and Materials

Our Chief puppet designers, Ukwanda Puppet Design Company (Luyanda Nogodlwana, Sipokazi Mpofu and Sipho Ngxolo) who are fellows in the Centre for Humanities Research Factory of the Arts@UWC have been hard at work to create prototypes of the two of the feature puppets for our show and parade this year. They are working with recycled metals, scrap and junk as well as lots of led lighting and exploring the new terrain of creating a phosphorescent alien puppet lantern! Designer Herman Witbooi, based in Barrydale is working on Buksie, a spaceship that is going to land in Barrydale later this year!
