Come make a shadow puppet of your favorite cryptozoological creature. Participants will learn to make a jointed puppet constructed for easy & fluid movement.

Don’t rely on grainy, out of focus, photos to prove what you saw in the wilderness. Show people what’s what with a shadow puppet of that mythical monster. I’m sorry, I mean that very real animal you know exists. This class will teach participants how to construct a durable, multi-part puppet that exhibits smooth, deliberate, & engaging movement. Students will be provided a PDF pattern & materials list. Everything you need can be found at a craft/office supply store or on amazon. You probably have most of it already at home. The class will be recorded & video made available to participants, so if you don’t have everything you need you can make it later. Materials- black poster board, brads (paper fasteners), xacto knife/blades, cutting mat, clear tape, craft wire, wire cutters, 2 wire coat hangers (or firm but bendable wire rod) or bamboo skewers.
