Grey and puppet

This storytelling workshop will allow participants to transform ordinary items such as newspaper, tape, and gift wrap into puppets in an exploration of the potential for imagination to transform and reshape the everyday world. James and Grey of the Bricoteer Puppetry Project will lead participants in making newspaper puppets, creating a story using the new puppets, and learning about performing. Two groups or troupes will be formed, and each will prepare a sketch to present to the other, with the help of James and Grey. Participants who do not wish to perform are invited to support the performance in other ways.

There will also be time to address the professional concerns of artists, educators, and caretakers and specific needs or adaptations.
