Basic Puppet Building - Animals

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.

Saturday, May 9th from 10am-5:30pm

Cost: $175
at Inscape Arts Building, Crash Boom Puppet Studio (Studio 230)

~ Class size limited to 8. Minimum enrollment: 3 students.
~ Recommended for ages 15 and up.

- How skilled do I need to be to take this class?
It's a beginning class, so we're ready to provide a lot of guidance. That said, your life will be much easier if you know how to do basic hand sewing.

- What sort of puppet will I be building?
You'll be making a plush arm and rod puppet. Many Muppets are in this style. #WeHaveNoAssociationWithTheHensonCompany #ButWeLoveThem

- Are materials included?
Yes. Everything you need will be on hand.

- What if I don't know how to use a puppet?
You can still build one. And then you can take a puppeteering class:
