19aug11:00 am12:00 pmSimple Puppets and Story MakingWith Maggie Winston

Event Details

As artists and educators adapt to online, the art of puppetry hasn’t lost its magic! In fact, a puppet works very well in the frame of a computer, ipad, or cell phone. In this workshop you will learn how to make simple puppets and backgrounds. Using ‘quick and dirty’ crafting techniques, each participant will make their own original puppet, which will then become part of a story we create and perform together as a group. We will improvise, play and collaborate to find interesting ways to manipulate our newly born puppet characters on screen, telling a story from beginning to end. Age 4+ Materials: Paper, scissors, sticks (pencils, chopsticks, skewers, natural sticks (small branches), popsicle sticks, dowels- pick one, it’s up to you), markers, pencils crayons, or crayons, tape (scotch or masking), cardboard (optional), dress-up costumes (optional)
