Create your own original puppet character while learning professional techniques for soft-sculpture construction with rod mechanisms. Puppets will be made using a variety of materials, including foam rubber, fleece, and fur fabrics, and constructed by gluing and hand & machine sewing. Other than basic sewing skills (straight stitch) and manual dexterity, the only other need is a healthy imagination! .

A $200 materials fee will be collected by the instructor at the beginning of the class.
