This is an excellent course for beginners in Waldorf Puppetry, for teachers and parents alike who wish to bring the love and joy of puppetry to their children but don't know how to get started.
For more experienced puppeteers, this will refresh and inspire you to return to the exquisite purity of simplicity in your puppet work with your puppet work with young children.
People often think puppetry for young children needs a lot of equipment. This course is all about how to develop and create magic with your Lap Theater puppet stories and how to use the 'INSTANT STAGE' !!!
As we explore both simple and more complex stories using our lap as our story landscape, we also will see how a simple puppet basket helps us smoothly introduce the story and puts the story to bed, creating a seamless telling with puppets.
Anyone who loves children can become a puppet teller, and this course guides you step by step on how to present beautiful puppet stories children will love!
