WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

MAKE A MUPPETY PUPPET IN FOUR TWO-HOUR SESSIONS


In this Fur and Foam Workshop, Kim teaches how to use simple templates to construct professional fur and foam puppets. Puppet construction emphasizes character creation, teaching the students to consider how the colour, shape, and location of features such as eyes, noses, mouths, teeth, ears, and hair make a puppet what it is.

Building skills acquired include how to work with upholstery foam, how to stitch using both a sewing machine (assisted use) and specific hand stitches, and how to create various mouth plates. Students are also taught basic puppeteering techniques including character animation and creating a voice.

Each puppeteer will receive a personalized puppet certificate upon completion.
