Recycle Build a Puppet Workshop
Yeah, Yeah, we know. The typical build-a-puppet class features paper bag puppets with glued-on decorations. Perfect to use as a litter bag in the car on the way home from the class.
• Well, not here at the Portland Puppet Museum. We help our students make puppets that they will take home, display proudly, and actually use.
Even big people have fun in our classes. We never know just what they will create.
• Each three-hour session begins with the sometimes hard decision of what type of puppet they want to build. They can bring an favorite old stuffed animal (or person) which can magically be converted to a working puppet. OR, they can choose from our extensive collection of stuffed stuff, most of which has been rescued from Goodwill and saved from a long trip back to China (where nasty things would surely happen to them). They have all been washed and made ready for their conversion.
• Then they need to decide what type of puppet they want to build. We have one price for the session. $45.00 each attendee for hand, rod, hopper, or marionette puppets. We are limiting the classes to eight students. Parents are welcome to join in assisting the smaller children in this creative fun memorable workshop. Sat. Mar. 18th from 1:00-4:00PM
