In Scandinavian folklore, the forests are full of trolls and little gnomes, and in Norwegian puppeteer and sculptor Marte Ekhougen a.k.a. Doctor Superhelga’s home in Norway, they abound in puppet and marionette form! In this online workshop for families and adults, we’ll learn how to make whimsical expressionistic troll “stuffies” using found and recycled materials. Follow along with Marte and her daughter as you watch the presentation to make your own troll baby at home! This event will take place as a virtual premiere via YouTube and Facebook; links will be added closer to the date. The event will remain available to watch on this page through September 25. Materials needed: Batting, filling (such as pillow stuffing) Stretchy fabric (such as an old shirt) Cardboard (for template) Yarn, strips of fabric, or other hair material Beads, buttons, ping-pong balls (for eyes) String or fishline Needle and thread Sewing machine Glue or low-temp glue gun Scissors Pins and needles Pantyhose.
