    Rust & Stardust is a Sussex-based puppet theatre company, established by Katie Sommers and Eleanor Conlon in 2015. We are passionate about stories, folklore and mythology, and are inspired by the natural world, unconventional performance spaces and all things homegrown and handmade.  We create all our puppets, costumes, sets and props ourselves and produce our own original scripts.   

    We pride ourselves on our commitment to sustainability in theatre and taking responsibility for our environmental impact.   

    We aim to use recycled and re-purposed materials in the creation of our puppets, animations, sets and costumes, and to promote greener theatre in our workshops and education projects.   

    In 2020 we continued to tour our popular family show Tweethearts, and updated our fabulous Puppet Parties to include new seasonal adventures and delightful characters. During the UK lockdown and theatre closures, we brought the magical world of Rust & Stardust online, sharing puppet making and craft tutorials, meet the puppets videos and more on our YouTube Channel. We also collaborated with award-winning musicians to create a free online mini-series, Endo the Earthworm.  

    This follows an extremely busy and successful 2019, which saw a dizzying array of puppet parties, workshops and shows, including Tweethearts and The Moose on the Moon, performances of Seeing Stars at Lancashire Science Festival, and a new puppet adaptation of The Tempest.  ______________________________

    Episode #97 - Crane Creation with Andreja Kovac - Puppet Podcast

    🎙Puppet Podcast #97 - Andreja Kovac from Crane Creation 🎙 

    👉Critically acclaimed professional theatre director from Slovenia trained at National Theatre School of Canada, she is the artistic director of Crane Creation who create a Puppet Festival in Mississauga, Ontario.  

    FOLLOW HER: ✅FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/CraneCreationsTheatreCompany/ 

    ✅INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/bridgesfestival/. ✅WEBSITE: https://www.cranecreations.ca/fr/bridges-festival-march-break/ 

    Directing, producing, creating theatre and being an artistic director.  Andreja always wanted to be  theatre director. When she was 5 and a half she did my first show with a group of 7 friends. They wrote a story about winter kidnapping spring and she played a snow bell, one of the early spring flowers whom helps rescue spring and get things back on track. Their performance was watched by their parents but they were hooked. Later on this group of early childhood friends went on to produce some outstanding professional artists: a publisher, a ballet dancer, painter, and her, an award winning, critically acclaimed professional theatre director.   Since that early age I kept on trying new hats in theatre. I started a theatre group in grade school and incorporated a professional theatre company in high school. Obviously I auditioned for  National Theatre School of Canada and against all the naysayers got accepted. From there in my life has become infused with professional theatre, from classics, to contemporary plays, new writing, development, touring, administration, puppetry, opera and I have done it all. I love it and cannot imagine my life without it.  ______________________________

    Episode #94 - Eva Gronowitz - Puppet Podcast

     👉Puppet Builder behind the Evelinka Puppets in Beacon, New York. She studied Film and Television in Tel Aviv and Sweden and, with over 35 years of experience, she is an award winner as a Production / Costume Designer and Puppet maker.  

    FOLLOW HER:    ✅FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/Evelinka-Puppets-366653484188178                                                           ✅INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/evelinkapuppets/ ✅WEBSITE: https://www.evelinkapuppets.com/ 

    Yes, we are the design studio that created the original Jeffy Puppet (copyright by Eva Gronowitz) . We also hand make Jeffy, Jeffy's Friends, custom made puppets, muppet puppets, hand puppets, ventriloquist puppets, look-alike caricature hand puppets (puppets that can be custom made from a photo of you, your favorite person, or a celebrity), If you need a small Jeffy please contact us. 

    Who owns the copyright? Beacon Art Studio. Artwork is only a starting point; it is subject to a wide variety of vagaries including the subjective eye of the artist; that is why it is called "conceptual." A three dimensional character and a flat image are not the same; nor can it be inferred that the flat image representation has anything to do with the size, features and inner construction.  

    When you purchase a puppet, you are purchasing a design contract, Beacon Art Studios LLC assigns ownership of the created physical puppet to the buyer. This includes the right to reproduce the character in visual media for advertising or promotional purposes only. All other rights are reserved by Beacon Art Studios but can be secured through a licensing contract.  

    A licensing contract is a “buyout option”, a one time fee that is agreed upon when the order is initially placed. The client can then reproduce the character in all media: photo, merchandising, plush, film & video, toy licensing, and reproductions of any sort. This fee is considerably higher, but not outrageous. We also ask for a credit on any film or video product.
