TWO youngsters proudly show off some of their handiwork in our first blast from the past this week.

The duo were among children who attended a workshop on how to make puppets.

Pictured here are two unnamed children with helper Markus Heimpel. Can you name the two youngsters?

We believe the picture was taken in the late-1980s or early-1990s.

Alongside this picture, we found two others from the same event.

One shows helper Catherine Bales demonstrating the art of rod puppetry to a young girl called Natalie Birds.

The other shows five youngsters busy working on decorating a puppet theatre.

Does any of this information sound familiar to you? Do you know what was going on here?
