Puppet making fun with children living with epilepsy. Helium partnered with Epilepsy Ireland to run puppet workshops in Galway, Cork, Dublin and Mayo in 2016 and 2017.

Fluffy and FriendsPuppet Workshops

Helium’s puppet-making workshops for children living with chronic illness are an opportunity for children to come together and explore their illness in a fun and non-threatening environment with other children living with the same illness. The children explore story-making, characterisation and puppet play and put on a short performance for parents.

The workshops are also an opportunity for parents to share and learn from each other as their children interact.
