Make your own Indonesian shadow puppets to take home.

Create beautiful characters and breathe life into them by manipulating the sticks to lead them in a performance behind our shadow theatre screen.

The art of Wayang Kulit or ‘shadow play’ is popular across Indonesia. Puppet plays are often used to convey stories of God, impart morality lessons, or educate people about good and evil. It is not unusual for Indonesian people to host Wayang plays on birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions.
