This Month is ‘Cardboard Creatures: Improv and Puppetry’, with Jennifer Jordan
Want to create complete weirdos out of inanimate objects? Sculpt new landscapes from brown boxes and packing paper? Perhaps you just really like puppets and want to pretend you’re part of Jim Henson’s cool gang.
This workshop will show you just how much fun can be had with something as simple as a toilet roll tube and some tissue paper. You will explore shared creature creation, emotions through faceless characters, and using simple objects to create beautiful & surprising scenery. It will be cute, and most certainly weird. Come play.
(Sunday) 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
