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 Rachel Jackson 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, she may even give you some tips on how to use them.
There are two ways to take this fun 6-hour class. You can build your puppet friend all in one day, or spread it out over several weeks...whatever best fits your schedule:
1-Day Class: Saturday, September 6th from 10am-5pm
3-Week Class: Saturdays, Sept 27 - Oct 11 from 11am-1pm
at Inscape Arts Building, Vox Fabuli 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 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: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/829296
