|April Weekend Workshops are a great way to engage with one aspect of puppetry for a concentrated weekend. Workshops include the art of puppet building, performing with puppets and using puppets as a tool for teaching. For ages 18+.
Puppet Building Workshop
Under the masterful guidance of Sandglass co-founder Ines Zeller Bass and Sandglass company member Jana Zeller, participants will learn the basics of a customized rod puppet. The process will include modeling a head and hand, techniques for painting puppet faces, and a fabric body. From this foundational structure students will develop and discover their own unique puppet characters.
Introduction to Performing with Puppets
Sandglass’ Artistic Directors, Eric Bass and Shoshana Bass, will lead participants through a number of exercises and concepts for breathing life into a puppet. Through breath and the power of the imagination, students will develop skills for working with one-person and three-person puppets, as well as developing short performance pieces.
All workshops are:
- Fridays from 6 – 9 pm
- Saturdays from 9 am – 4 pm
- Sundays from 9 am – 3 pm
Workshops are $250 for the weekend plus $25 materials fee for the building workshop. A $50 deposit holds your spot. Reserve your place at
