Intro to Puppet Making with Rielle Pavot

April 4 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm MDT

| $90

THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE RESCHEDULED AT A FURTHER DATE

There is so much to learn and love in the world of puppet making! In this workshop, each student will build the start of an industry standard puppet. This workshop will dive into learning special sewing techniques for puppet making, working with foam, patterning and even using thermal beads! Because puppet making is a long process the foam will be precut and glued. Students will sew the ‘skin’, design facial features and create them. Students will also build a mouth plate for their puppets. This workshop is 5 hours. There will be a half hour break in the workshop. You are welcomed to bring a lunch for this break.

Rielle is an Honours graduate from Advanced Special Effects Makeup Prosthetics and Props program from Sheridan College.  Since graduating she has furthered her knowledge for puppets and is excited to share her knowledge and experience with you all!

This is a hands-on workshop that will cover:

  • General overview of the different types of puppets and how they are designed for their practical use
  • What tools and materials are needed for puppet making and where to source them
  • Building a mouth plate: design, pattern and create each unique mouth
  • Learn hand stitching for puppet making
  • Design and build facial features and apply to your puppet
  • Design and make hair for your puppet
  • Making Friendly Plastic eyes
  • Build the channel for your arm/hand to control puppet
  • Discuss building arms and bodies for your puppet

All skill levels are welcome. Students are asked to bring a notebook, pen, sewing shears, snips, ruler, and scissors. All other supplies will be provided. Theatre Garage offers a 10% discount to any sewing supplies the day of the workshop. This workshop is $90 and is 5 hours.

Bring your lunch or snack for the 30 minute break. We have a fridge and microwave available. No food allowed during the workshop, only covered drinks.
