    Have you always wanted to make your own customized puppet? What about your own pet monster? Well, now you're in luck! This class will give you all of the skills you need to start building your very own puppets (monster or otherwise).

    Class participants will be guided step by step through the process of making a moving-mouth puppet with rod-controlled arms, a style frequently used in television puppetry. You will be taught how to properly cut faux fur, how to hide and minimize the appearance of seams, how to create posable hands, and much, much more. In addition to learning how to build the puppet, participants will be introduced to the materials generally used in puppet design, and the common tools every puppet maker needs. Everyone in the class will be expected to sew, use hot glue, and use basic hand tools. Prior building experience is not necessary.
