Celebrate Winter Birds Puppet Workshop

Celebrate Winter Birds Puppet Workshop

As part of the 2023 Chinook Blast Winter Festival, we’re hosting a puppet pop-up featuring the story of The Gray Jay and the Magpie by Ken Lee.

Inspired by the story, we’re making winter bird puppets! Children and adults can craft a beautiful paper mask body puppet facsimile of the intrepid birds found in the Calgary area during the winter. Like the chickadee, magpie, flicker and gray jay, we’ll celebrate staying warm with feathers and community.

This is a drop-by workshop and is free for all.

For more information visit The Gray Jay & The Magpie: A Puppet Pop Up.

Date: Saturday, February 4, 2023
Time: 1 – 3pm
Location: Calgary Library, Main Branch

Suitable for children, ages 5 and up, but all are welcome. All tools and supplies will be provided.

WP Puppet Theatre’s puppetry-based workshops, residencies and puppet shows present a wide range of opportunities to link to both specific learning objectives and to 21st century learning skills. Our goal is to support classroom learning, inspire students to be creators, performers and makers, and be a resource for both teachers and students.
