All Hands on Deck!

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

Saturday May 12, 10:00 a.m.
Orem Public Library, Storytelling Wing 
 Puppet Workshop

Come one, come all! 

Expert Puppeteer Mark and puppet addict Amy will be on hand to show you how to make the best use of your hand, at least puppet-wise.

Starting at 10:00 a.m. sharp, Mark will present:

Once Upon a Time, a puppet show for all ages

Following the show everyone will get a chance to learn some basic puppet skills with their very own set of puppet eyes (free supplies are available for the first 72 registrants). This simple make and take will help you sail on to puppet manipulation success even after you leave the workshop.

After some simple exercises, accompanied by a lot of fun, a few volunteer beginners will have an opportunity to show off their new-found puppet skills. Too shy to be a volunteer? Now worries mate, the resulting show is guaranteed to be a boat-load of laughs.

So don’t be a lily-livered landlubber, this is one program you won’t want to miss! Children and Adults are invited to this hour-long interactive puppet show and workshop. And let's bring your puppets to life!

Register at the Children’s Desk or by calling 801-229-7161.

See you there!

p.s. Last minute attendee? Not in the first 72? No problem, a veritable plethora of puppets will be on hand(s). Soon, you too will come to see the magic that can be had whilst playing with puppets!

Stay tuned for some opportunities to watch Amy and Mark make puppets. As part of a living advertisement for the upcoming Fabric Arts Boutique, we will be front and center in the library, demonstrating the art of making fleece puppets. All created puppets will be available for bidding at the FAB Boutique silent auction.
