Making and Using Hand Puppets
Make and learn to work a puppet!
The Eulenspiegel Puppeteers will take you through the process of making a traditional hand puppet with a hard head and fabric body. You will make a head of newspaper and plaster bandages, using a process the puppeteers have used in numerous classrooms for over 25 years. You'll paint the face and make a mobile, no-sew body. You'll learn to work the puppet and leave ready to put together your own show.
