Set in a vibrant maker space for artists, an assorted cast of puppet characters work along side Alex and Da'Lene, co-owners of the workshop. This coterie of characters must learn valuable skills in order to work together and grow, such as emotional intelligence, empathy, and resilience.
The Workshop is eclectic and electric, vibrant and inspiring, with no shortage of foibles, conflicts, and internal struggles for young people to use as a mirror for their own social and emotional development.
