percyWeek 1:  June 1 to 5.  Exploring Puppetry

Participants explore the incredible range of puppet styles: how to make them and how to bring them to life.

We will try out many different forms of puppetry – rod, string, shadow, table-top, and more.

We will delve into puppet construction –  the basics of joints, balance, controls.  We will explore puppet manipulation & teaching puppets to act.
