Foam Puppet Fabrication Techniques

With Ali DeRegt

Workshop participants will learn how to build a puppet head out from foam. They will make an initial sculpture from clay, draft a pattern from that sculpture, and build a version out of sheets of foam.

This workshop will provide everyone with the foundation of skills, materials and methods to build your own high-quality foam-based animated objects, right from out of your imagination.
