Monster Making Master Class: Part 1

  • Puppet Kitchen Productions 220 East 4th Street New York, NY, 10009 United States (map)


Join us during the first two weeks in December for our next Monster Making Master Class! Just in time for the Holidays, these furry monsters make amazing DIY gifts.

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

Well, come on down to the Puppet Kitchen for our Monster Making Master Class!

In this three part series, Chef Michael will show you how to design and construct your very own “live hand” 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 18 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.
