Basic Puppet Building
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. Seattle-based puppeteer Chad Allers will guide you step-by-step as you create one of five animals: Dog, Cat, Bear, Bunny or Unicorn..or any animal your imagination can devise. If time allows, he may even give you some tips on how to use them.

"Finding Your Puppet's Character"
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.
