For Parents

"Success in the future—for individuals, for communities, for companies, for nations as a whole—will be based on the ability to think and act creatively. Different children are interested in different types of making."

- Prof Mitchel Resnick (MIT)

We know that different children are interested in different types of making, from making lego Star Wars spacecrafts to making cardboard puppet creations to making  to making up poems or stories, we believe all children are creative. We're designing workshops that nurture children's creative capacities.

Creative Dramatics & Creative Projects WOrkshops

Pukka hosts workshops for primary school kids that strengthens resilience and creativity through storytelling and making things. We look at igniting children's curiosity to explore and understand the world around them through our various projects and themes.

Creative Dramatics:  Kids build confidence and explore creativity through making and performing their own theatrical creations inspired by the world of theatrical story telling. We offer primary school kids 6-9 week long story-making workshops. 

Creative Projects: Kids are the masters of play and curiosity. This workshop series encourages inventiveness and originality by making connections to the world around them by completing makers-projects and taking a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) approach to learning. We offer primary school kids 6-8 week long creative workshops.

Collaborating on a group mission is wonderful way for children to ways of expressing themselves through group projects and team-work. Making things in the context of fictional worlds allows students to integrate imagination and real life experiences, thus making connections and making meaning.
