Gallery – puppet making

This was a new course.  Over six weeks, an array of puppets came into being.  Created from paper, bamboo sticks, foam, yards and yards of masking tape and glue, a wonderful assortment of creatures took shape.

Fascinating! I made my first puppet head! Yeah!

Smoothing out my mysterious puppet head – working with white napkin tissues and tissue paper.  It will be interesting what character will emerge!

Quite challenging this session – working out the body for the head – I needlessly felt rushed when actually I had plenty of time! Hands and feet still to be done

IMG_2290IMG_2294IMG_2295IMG_2297I have never worked on puppets before so it has been very interesting to see and do aspects of puppet making,  from start to finish.  I will never look at puppets in the same way again!
