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.
A winter pandemic is the perfect time to learn a new skill! And what better skill is out there than learning to puppeteer for all of your tik-tok, instagram, or YouTube Live videos?!
WHAT: In this 3-hour puppeteering workshop, you'll learn the basics of moving-mouth puppetry from puppeteer, Stacey Gordon. You 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 beginning and early-intermediate puppeteers, librarians, teachers, play therapists, or anyone who just wants a refresher on their puppetry skills. (If you come in with skills, we'll try to expand on those. If you come in with none, you'll get oh so many skills!)
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. Please note that if purchased on or after January 18th (for orders in the US), your order may not arrive in time, so please reserve your spot EARLY!
