I finally got to make a new puppet this week. It has been a long time and the familiar feeling of stitching life into fabric at 1 in the morning was good to return to! Rabbit has no name at present but held the focus of the children at Beacon Heath and Whipton Surestart Centres. There is a great simplicity in the act of unwrapping a puppet with children, waking it and then, in this case, feeding it with salad leaves. Once we had worked out that plastic was really not going to work that is!! I am going to use Rabbit as a focus for the Children's Centre work I am doing with Love Local Food. Don't tell Martyn at Shillingford Organics though as I am not sure rabbits are particularly welcome in the polytunnel!
