Description: Mirek Trejtnar, puppet master from Prague, will guide children and their parents through the process of making Czech-style marionettes (puppets that hang on wires). Children will receive pre-cut pieces of wood to make hands, legs, head and bodies. Then it�s time to paint and make costumes. Finally, you will connect your puppet to a controller, add strings, and voila; now you are a puppeteer. Adults will need to assist their children nail and screw together puppets parts as they finalize their puppets. Workshop length: 45 minutes.
