Lisa Sturz from Red Herring Puppets will lead a hands-on workshop on the ancient tradition of shadow puppetry throughout the world. Participants will build their own theatre from a cardboard box and create puppets to perform the life cycle of a butterfly. They will learn about transparent, translucent, and opaque objects and develop the basic skills needed to continue making their own original shows out of household items. This class is appropriate for all ages; children younger than 10 will likely need adult supervision.
Each ticket includes a kit with art supplies such as poster board, plain paper, cellophane, wire rods, shower curtain, box, hole punch and paper fasteners, plus instructions and patterns. You will need to supply scissors, a pencil, and clear tape. Kits will be available for pick up at the Museum, 200 S. 6th Ave., from noon-4 pm Thursday and Friday, April 8-9.
You will receive a Zoom link for the workshop in your acknowledgment email after purchasing tickets.
