Exploring Puppets: Making Shadow Puppets
Exploring Puppets: Making Shadow Puppets - July 23rd from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM - Price: $35
Workshop Instructor: Mary Brown and Richard Brown

Participants will use a variety of materials that can be used to create unique shadow puppets and scenery. The materials used may include shapes cut from cardboard, overhead transparencies, and three-dimensional objects, and a variety of lighting and staging considerations. Different types of lighting (such as overhead, film, or digital projectors; spotlights, and regular lights) and screens (such as fabrics, walls, whiteboards, or regular screens) will also be explored. The sequencing and presentation of a shadow puppet program and storyboard will be described and explored. The participants will use a variety of tools and hot lights in the creation and exploration of the shadow puppets. This workshop coordinates with the other three Exploring Puppets workshops (Making Simple Puppets, Making Hand Puppets and Making Tabletop Theatres).

The Exploring Puppets workshops are designed for teachers, librarians, parents, home-school teachers, religious leaders, and children age 10 to 18. An adult must accompany participants who are under the age of 18 as participants may be using sharp utensils and hot glue guns. A non-paying adult may aid a registered child on only the child’s project.
