I think that we can all agree that 2020 has been a giant dumpster fire and we appreciate your patience as orders for physical products (which are not masks) are going to take a little longer to ship. If you have a pressing deadline, please contact us prior to purchase.
Puppeteering Basics ONLINE Workshop for KIDS, Ages 8-14, Saturday February 27th, 11am-12:30pm MST
Do your kids want to be YouTube or Tik-Tok stars? Have you been trying to think of something fun and interactive to keep them occupied while everyone goes stir crazy? Let us introduce them to puppetry! Whether your child just needs something to keep them away from video games, or if they're so into puppetry, they've been pouring over old Puppetry Journals, this workshop will keep them engaged AND will teach them a new skill!
WHAT: In this 1.5-hour puppeteering workshop, your child will learn the basics of moving-mouth puppetry from puppeteer, Stacey Gordon. Students will be led through skills such as focus, breathing, posture, movement, lip sync and emotion to help make your characters come alive.
This workshop is perfect for kids who are curious about how puppets work, and want to learn the secrets behind bringing some of their favorite characters to life!
AND with this special online workshop, you’ll be mailed a random set of Peepers puppet eyes with your reservation! (If you truly dislike a specific color, you can let us know in the comments & we’ll do our best to accommodate. Requests *for* specific colors likely cannot be honored, but we can definitely do our best to avoid giving you something you despise.)
Although this workshop can be taken without peepers, it’s ideal if you have them. (The wiggle-eye version does not work for this workshop.) Please note that if purchased on or after February 22nd (for orders in the US), your order may not arrive in time, so please reserve your spot EARLY!
