Workshop: The Secrets of "Trash/Junk Puppet" Alchemy
Open Eye Figure Theatre
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:

Join our hands-on experimental puppet building laboratory and learn how to "spin straw into gold" as we repurpose and re-envision diverse found and recycled materials: First we will create a menagerie of improbable creatures unknown to science!  Next, learn how to breathe life into them and discover the secret stories they reveal. Class will culminate in performances.
