Giant Puppet-Making Workshop

Instructors: Alisha Dall-Osto and Tara Jaiyeola

Puppetry is an ancient art form that has been used for thousands of years to communicate the ideas of society. Join us for this project-based workshop where you will design and build your own 8-foot tall puppet. Sculpt a clay model, build a mold for the character's face, use paper-mache, paint, and fabric to design the body and engineer a wearable armature. Hone your critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Class time will also be dedicated to puppeteering and movement techniques that will bring characters to life. We will conclude with a performance event on campus for family and friends.

Meets: M-F, 1-4 p.m., August 4-15
Location: UW Seattle campus
Length: Two weeks
Cost: $405
