Workshops making simple rod puppets based on Wayang Golek, traditional rod puppets of Sunda, West Java, are available with a demonstration of how these colourful characters move.

Using easily available mainly recycled materials, participants can construct and operate a simple rod puppet which can breathe like a traditional wayang golek puppet. Depending on time they might create and perform a story, or in short workshops at least learn how to present their character and make them move.

This workshop can be presented with reference to the following productions which use traditional Indonesian Wayang Golek:
