Puppet Building 101: Jointed Rod Puppet - 60 min - build

Participants will build a working, jointed Bunraku (Japanese rod) style puppet from recycled newspaper, masking tape, and craft sticks! Based on the human figure and human proportions, puppets can be transformed into just about any character. There is also an extended workshop (90 minutes) offering participants an opportunity to bring their puppets to life through manipulation exercises and scripted scenes. Though participants will each build their own individual puppet, teamwork is required during manipulation. Traditional Bunraku puppets, pictures, and video clips enhance the content. This workshop is ideal for team building and for anyone 14 years + who wants to learn how to build a real, working puppet.
