    What makes a great puppet show? Participants will be introduced to the exciting and multifaceted world of puppetry through hands-on exploration of the materials and performance methods used by professional puppeteers. The class will study and discuss the work of great including Richard Bradshaw, Burr Tillstrom, and Sergey Obraztsov, and learn what core elements unite traditional Punch and Judy shows with the Muppets and the giant puppets of Royale de Luxe. Participants will survey basic puppetry construction methods, build their own puppets, and learn the basic techniques for making puppets come to life.

    This is an introductory-level class: participants of all interests, backgrounds, and abilities are welcome. Participants have gone on to take advanced classes, create their own works, or simply have a greater appreciation for this timeless art form.
