Storage, transportation, weight are all issues that puppeteers deal with daily. 
Let’s solve these problems together

Construction of puppet heads and hands, utilizing needle sculpting techniques to create characters.
A faster and cleaner technique than papier-mâché, clay, or other traditional puppet manufacturing methods.

NEEDLE SCULPTED PUPPET HEADS
THE NEXT GENERATION

A class for more 3 dimensional characters with animated features.

Basic sewing skills are essential.

Movement for meaning for puppetry

This course is to assist with audience understanding of puppet movements irrespective of puppet style.
(I.E Marrienette, Bunraku, Table-top, Rod, or Glove puppets.)

By analytically breaking down physical movement, recreating it in our own bodies, we are then more able to transfer it into puppet movements.

Private classes
