Save the Date! Join Atlanta area puppeteer and puppet builder Kevin Pittman on Sunday, October 3rd at 2 PM for an online two-and-a-half hour workshop on Fabric Sculpture Puppet Construction with a bonus tour of his workshop and puppet creations.
Learn how to build fabric-sculpture characters in many forms including body puppets and mascot characters, hand-and-rod puppets, rod puppets, glove puppets, and even marionettes. We will cover the full process from initial design to acquiring tools and supplies to building each component of the character and fitting it all together. A gallery of Kevin's characters can be found on his website at www.forestpuppets.com providing a sense of the design styles that will be presented. The presentation will begin with a short demonstration of some of Kevin's favorite creations and a look around his home puppetry workshop
