‘It was brill – tailored, personal and suited to each individual’
‘I really enjoyed myself and learned a lot’
On this one-day course you will build a nifty but not over-complicated puppet control mechanism that lets you hold the figure’s body and control the head finely with one hand – leaving the other free to do arms, or legs, or some other part! It would make a good basis for a two-person (or, potentially, one-person) tabletop figure.
You will also learn some making techniques using plywood and other materials, and tools including the bandsaw, and some practicalities of puppet mechanisms that are applicable to lots of other making tasks. All materials will be provided.
Please note that although we will discuss what happens next with your mechanisms, the course will not leave you a complete puppet!
