About Jhess Knight

Come in, sit down, have a cup of tea and let's talk about PUPPETS!

Operating out of Melbourne, I am proud to be an Australian puppeteer and puppet maker or "puppet-smith". Trained at the London School of Puppetry, I have a wide skill base, making and operating various styles. I am highly experienced in teaching puppetry to people of all ages, speaking at events, collaborating with other artists etc. Passionate about sustainability, my work is created as much as possible using recycled and re purposed materials.

My services include:

  • Custom made puppets - for TV, theatre, schools, festivals etc.
  • Performance - puppeteer for hire!
  • Roving puppetry - have beautiful puppets out and about at your next festival or event.
  • Workshops - for people of all ages and abilities.
  • Trash Puppets workshops & show! see trashpuppets.com 
  • Private tuition
  • Creative consultation
  • Speaker for conferences and events
  • Puppetry direction
  • Sculpture
