PUPPET MAKING - YOUTH CLASS ages 9+

 

For a multitude of reasons, sometimes it is better to create a puppet that your hand doesn’t or can’t go inside. This class will focus on what a “Mechanism” is and how they are used in puppets. More than just a device that you put inside your puppet, mechanisms bring a whole new life to your puppet. In creating movement, puppeteers like you can manipulate this movement by using a cable, pulling a string, using a wooden rod, etc. This class will feature a more simple mechanism in the creation of your puppet.  Students in this class will build their mechanism and then construct a foam puppet around the device that they create. After we build the base it will be time to create our character and turn our creation into a puppet.
