Introductory Puppetry Workshop Puppetry-002

For adult novices with no previous experience in art or drama.

 

An introduction and exploration to the world of puppetry using objects, make-shift puppets, and shadow puppetry.

 

As artists we manipulate our medium of choice to reveal parts of ourselves, an idea, an emotion, a story. Puppetry can be a very intimate way through which to explore the self, and create visual hooks for others to attach meaning to.
