Intro to Stage Puppeteering In this fun, dynamic class, you'll learn the foundations of good stage puppetry - focus, physical commitment and basic puppet operation. Together we'll work on how to make your puppet seem alive and connect with the audience. You'll get lots of hands-on time with professional arm-and-rod puppets plus a simple practice puppet to take home so you can keep working on your skills.
~ No puppet experience required. ~ Class recommended for ages 15 and up.
"Top-notch puppetry workshop." - Sam Longoria "Finding Your Puppet's Voice” You know how to make your puppet talk, but what does she sound like? You can make him move, but where is he going? And how does he get there?
In this fun, intermediate puppeteering class, you'll learn the basics of characterization - voice, physicality and emotion - and how to apply them to your puppet. You'll get tons of tips for making character choices and see what a big impact they can have on your puppet's performance.
~ Beginning Puppetry class or equivalent puppet experience required. ~ Class recommended for ages 15 and up.

"I hired the amazing Rachel of Vox Fabuli Puppets for a corporate event that blended Puppeteering Basics and Improv practice. She had the challenge of holding her own in a group of twenty training delivery professionals and not only did that, but lead all of us through an inspiring, experiential experience that taught us to be open, courageous, and collaborative. I recommend adding the Puppet-making add-on so each participant has a great memento/friend of a great day! Rachel also was a great communicator and planner when discussing our needs. She is such a professional and entertaining presenter. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" - Hazelmae Overturf, BECU
