This workshop explores the wide world of soft sculpture materials that can be used to make a circuit & will show participants how to integrate these circuits into a working rod puppet.

In this class students will be able to learn to use a wide variety of materials to make circuits in their puppets. Supplies available to participants will include conductive thread, conductive fabric, conductive paint, & conductive tape. When these materials are combined with LED’s, batteries, switches & a circuit all kinds of fun are in store. Participants will learn how make a proper circuit & the fundamentals of how they work. Then participants will be able to make a puppet using these materials that will utilize electricity. Everyone will get a hand-out showing where to get all the materials available to them in class. The focus of this class is to teach about circuits & the materials available to create them in soft sculpture mediums. Beginners in circuitry are welcome but a basic working knowledge of crafting skills are needed to leave with a completed puppet.
