Littlecrowns Storyhouse Founder
Hello Everyone, my Name is Delvene AKA ‘Del Del’ And Am The Founder Of Little Crowns Storyhouse.
Why Did You Start Puppetry?
I Fell In Love With Puppetry At Age 14 When I Was Chosen To Perform A Puppet Show To The Audience Members At My Local Church And I Must Admit I Had No Idea What I Was Doing. However, The Audience Loved It. I Took Classes With An Awesome Company Called One Way UK Where I Was Taught Key Skills And Foundations Of Puppetry.
How Did You Come Up With Littlecrowns Storyhouse?
I Studied Acting At Stella Adler Studio In New York City. Whilst In NYC, I Was Chosen To Work On Behalf Of The Student Outreach Team That Held Regular Workshops In Schools Around New York. This Experience Led Me To Start Making Puppets And Perform Traditional Folk Stories In Local Children’s Bookshops Around New York City. When I got back to london I wanted to start a business that merged all my passions together, so I created Littlecrowns Storyhouse.
How Did You Become Passionate About Childcare?
In Addition To Being An Actor, I’m A Full Time Nanny And Have Worked With Children From Birth To Primary. My Motto Is To Always Enhance The Child Experience Through Play! I Encourage Children To Express Their Own Creativity While Nurturing Appreciation Of Puppetry. I Encourage Littlecrowns To Express A Wide Range Of Activities That Babies Loves Such As Dances, Stories, Puppets, Movements And Music.
