"Top-notch puppetry workshop." - Sam Longoria Basic Puppet Building date tbd Walk in with a sad, naked hand and walk out with a fabulous new puppet friend in this basic class.
Dip your toe into the wide, weird waters of puppet construction: cutting, sewing (hand and machine) and hot gluing your way to a finished puppet. Your friendly instructor will guide you step-by-step as you create an elf or a reindeer or whatever furry friend your imagination can devise.
"Finding Your Puppet's Voice” date tbd 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.
