Exploring Puppets: Making Tabletop Theatres
Exploring Puppets: Making Tabletop Theatres - July 23rd from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM - Price: $52
Workshop Instructor: Mary Brown and Richard Brown

Participants will create a small toy theatre with sliding puppets and scenery. Construction will include the use of foam-board, cardboard, wooden sticks, fabric, and markers. Additional information and demonstrations will be provided on the use of other types of tabletop puppet theatres and puppets. Tabletop theaters provide the opportunity for an individual to present a complete show that is easily transported and stored. This workshop coordinates with the other three Exploring Puppets workshops (Making Hand Puppets, Making Shadow Puppets and Making Simple Puppets).

The Exploring Puppets workshops are designed for teachers, librarians, parents, home-school teachers, religious leaders, and children age 10 to 18. An adult must accompany participants who are under the age of 18 as participants may be using sharp utensils and hot glue guns. A non-paying adult may aid a registered child on only the child’s project.
