The joy of bringing a puppet to life! Serita learning with one of the traditional Japanese sannin-zukei style of puppetry (commonly referred to here as Bunraku, but really that's just the name of a company in Japan that does that style).
Zoe found out about our workshop last minute but was able to do both days. She said she had never made a puppet before and hadn't done paper mache since grade school, but she made an amazing head to use with the practice body Tom brought.
Michele, Andrew and Serita holding stick with palm of hand while doing movement, to learn how to listen to each others' bodies when manipulating a puppet with three people.
Tom showing us how to practice moving a puppet's legs to look like it's walking.
Serita, Donovan and Andrew moving the puppet with the head that Andrew had made.
