Give us five weeks and we’ll give you the tools you need to make your very own short puppet show from scratch. Make Your Own Solo Puppet Show is for individuals of all experience levels interested in learning the all-around basics of puppetry, creating their own works of puppet theater, or sharpening their craft. Over the course of the class, you’ll learn to breathe life into objects, build a simple and effective puppet, and stage a short work. At the end of these five weeks, you’ll have a piece to perform at cabarets, variety shows, or your own kitchen table – and you’ll have the skills to independently generate puppet art whenever you like.
