All Hands on Deck:
A Puppeteer's Guide to Storytelling

On May 12, 2012 a host of puppeteer wannabe's gathered, watched, created, played and had fun learning the basics of puppet manipulation. This workshop, geared for adults (but just as much fun for kids), is the first in a summer long series that will culminate in a grand Puppet Festival this September. Also, watch for the upcoming release of The World's Best Guide to Puppet Making and Puppetry, a Familius publication by Mark Pulham, Joe Flores and Amy White.

We watched

We played

One last thing - remember the FAB (Fabric Art's Boutique) coming up June 11-16 at the Orem Library? Rumor has it that there will be some hand created puppets up for silent auction at the FAB.
