Class #1: "Get a Head"

LET THE FUR FLY!

Have you ever wanted to make your own professional puppet from scratch? Do you need your own rod TV style  practice puppet, or just want to learn more about puppet making in general?

Well, come on down to the Puppet Kitchen in July for our first Rod Arm Monster Making Master Class!

In this three part series, Chef Michael will show you how to design and construct your very own “rod arm” lip synch style puppet entirely from scratch. Each class will cover a specific area of puppet design and construction. Feel free to select a specific session or sign up for all three for a discounted rate. 

No prior puppet making experience is needed, however, machine and hand sewing experience is a plus. All materials will be provided. Ages 16 and up only, please.

This is your chance to learn how to make a puppet from the ground up from the professionals. Walk in with nothing and walk out with your own custom puppet and the know-how to make more.
