Just Enough with Maggie Winston of Lost & Found Puppet Co 

Come experience Maggie’s repurposed Yiddish folktale about beloved objects finding new life! Her puppet show tells the tale of a grandmother who makes a quilt from materials she has collected over the years, and gives it to her granddaughter. With each piece a memory is shared. Although she may not have much, she will always have ‘just enough’ for a great story!

Just Enough is based on a traditional Yiddish folktale and has since spread, transformed, and been retold in many cultures around the world. Just enough gives a whole new spin to the notion of recycling, as beloved objects find new uses, while also celebrating family ties and passing down memories between grandparents and grandkids.

Craft Corner: Paper-roll Puppet Pals!

Be prepared to bring some of your favourite animals to life in our crafting corner! Join us as we re-use recycled household items to make finger puppets for you to bring home and tell your own stories with! Craft supplies are included in the ticket price, please note that all children must be accompanied by a guardian.
