RESUME  
Learning with Puppets
Guide: Prof. Nina Sabnani

Puppets are always fascinating, surrounded by an atmosphere of unreality and fantasy, magic and comedy. This project aimed to experiment and explore the potential of puppets, by placing them in the small hands and minds of children allowing them to learn and explore through role playing. Towards this end I studied briefly about the learning stages amongst children (a part of child psychology), and learnt to make puppets from a traditional craftsman in Udaipur, (Rajasthan).

The emergent concepts were puppets designed to facilitate role playing. A set of puppets which comprises of a family were explored using found objects and waste materials. This has formed a kind of kit that includes a stage and allows children to role-play with puppets in different settings.
