Last week, the puppet building team at the Handspring factory, 30 visitors from the National Gallery and artists from Net Vir Pret Barrydale, watched in joy and awe as Adrian Kohler’s latest designs for the elephants came to life for the first time!  The puppet making team, under Adrian’s expert creative and technical eye, have been working for months on these, the latest puppets from the Handspring Puppet Company, created for the Handspring Puppet Trust’s project in Barrydale.  What a sight to see!
