Want to make your own puppets but don't know how to begin? This five week course introduces fundamental design and construction techniques that can be applied to making any kind of puppet character you can imagine. You will also bring home your own unique table top troll!
We'll start by constructing your puppet's face, transforming flat materials into a three-dimensional sculpture. Next, we'll strengthen and unify your creation using paper mache. Then, we'll learn to create a pattern for the body using fabric, foam and polyfill. You'll complete your troll by adding paint, hair, eyes, and details to bring your character to life.
