Workshops & Classes 


5-week workshop

What you get from this workshop:

  • A new solo puppetry act that you can do on stage or for online shows.

  • framework to use for creating acts, over and over again.

  • Videos, handouts, and resources from each class.

  • private facebook group for support from fellow students.

  • Resources for submitting your act to shows.

A solo act in your back pocket is a game changer.

You can do it anywhere

and you will have it forever.

We'll talk about good writing and storytelling, creating your characters and we'll discuss the question - why puppets?  We'll go over styles of puppetry.

You'll come up with an outline for your act based on the framework provided and will start to practice in your chosen style of puppetry!

You will submit video of your performance to me. I'll provide resources for submitting to puppet slams and shows.
