Puppetry in Film Workshop
Come and make a puppet with us!
Have you ever played with your food, danced with your fingers, or talked to your teddy bear? Is your inner child is kicking? Then this is the place to be on May’s Saturdays!
Open to ages 5 and up, we will conduct three Puppetry in Film workshops free for the community. These will take place on Saturday, May 5th, 12th, and 19th, between 2-5pm.
A special time to slow down and learn some new techniques of puppet making. All materials are child friendly and very colorful.
Then, once you have completed your puppet you will be able to make a short film with it, solo or with some puppeteer friends!!! You will also have a wonderful opportunity to meet the friendly Wolfy, who will be visiting and interacting with your puppet.
The best short films will be presented to the larger audiences on the exciting evening that will host a Grand Puppet Slam! on Friday, June 22nd, at 7pm. The films will also be available online for you to share with your family and friends at- www.wolfysjourney.com
