Our Annual Summer Puppet Boot Camp 2022 - a 6-week Intensive Training on The Puppet Story Apron! Begins in July - date TBA
Imagine a story apron for puppetry, a theater we wear, that has a wet felted bib landscape with a pocket full of story puppets, and a flowing colorful silk skirt which extends the landscape onto our laps where our story lives!
The children are mesmerized, it is so lovely and intimate for them. Imagine.
This 6 week puppet boot camp gives us time to make this beautiful story world together, explore magical ways how to use it to tell warm-hearted puppet stories, and we will also dye our apron silks using a multicolor over-dye method that creates exquisite flows of color. All online! I will be with you all the way!
The Puppet Boot Camp is an Annual event which began in-person, over 12 years ago, and since Covid, we have kept it alive by going online, and it works so well I will keep it online so those who are far, far away can join in without the costs of travel and accommodation.
Well before we begin I will send you a materials list, and once the course begins you will have video tutorials, demonstrations, presentations of stories, etc. There will be action steps to take with each lesson and, an easy way to share comments, post your photos, and videos too. A community can arise of colleagues engaged in the same wonderful process of skill building and creation.
Payment plans are available, worked out individually. Schools that are supporting your professional development may contact me for an invoice etc.
A day or two before we begin you will get an email from Ruzuku, our host platform for the training, inviting you to sign in. Then we dive in together.
This is not a Zoom course, it is recorded on an online course platform, but active in our sharing in real time. This allows you to work on it on your own schedule.
I am limiting the number of participants for this theme, so if this warms your heartdo sign up early!
