Puppetry is for everyone! Making a puppet show does not have to be complicated or expensive. Using materials from around the house and/or the dollar store we will learn to make a puppet show! We will make puppets, a puppet stage, and a story! Students will work alongside professional puppeteer Mike Harding of Applefun Puppetry. Don't worry if your show isn't perfect; we are here to have fun and make wonderful mistakes! Prior experience is not required. Joins us for all of the sessions or pick-and-choose. In this third session you will create a little story for your puppet show. Ages 6-12
