& CHILD ROD PUPPET WORKSHOP
will bring a few examples of this type of puppet and parents
and children together will sculpt the head out of newspaper
and scraps. We use lots of tape so the more hands the
better. A flowing scarf or piece of material allows us
to create the body and hand motion effects and of course
we get to decorate and dress it afterwards.
Watch your own special character emerge as we make these
dramatic puppets out of simple materials and see them
come to life!

FOR EDUCATORS: HISTORY & APPLICATIONS
this workshop I will discuss puppetry and puppet craft
as a historical genre, puppet as performance object, and
then concentrate on its uses in education and therapy.
I will identify a few pieces with their makers, and will
discuss how they work as craft and how they function in
societies through performance and uses in education with
some notes about how puppets are used in politics, ministries
and puppets in therapy.
We’ll include information on Cranky boxes, the history
of Punch and Judy, scroll paintings, peepshows, play therapy,
the differences and similarities between doll play and
puppet play, a bit about puppet’s relationship to
masks and narrated sculptures.
In the second section we will get into some real puppet
making techniques for the classroom. We will concentrate
on materials that can be made readily available and types
of puppets that work well in class settings and for different
age groups, focusing on elementary (below grade 8). It
is not necessary to have any particular skills in art;
just an avid interest and a need to apply it. N.
