Puppet Studio

 I felt a bit like Alice in Wonderland walking around the Festifools workshop.  Strange huge heads looked down from everywhere.  It was an amazing experience.

Ruth walked us through the studio showing us how a few sticks can be transformed into a puppet.  First, the sticks are covered with a card board skeletal structure.  Then papier mâché is layered over the cardboard, 
finally the structure is painted and the puppet comes to life.

Mark, one of the puppet 
masters, showed us 
a video 
from previous 
Festifools events.

The children's 
imagination, and 
are certainly 
They are looking 
forward to 
getting started 
with their own 
Which are the puppet heads?
