What people are saying:

"Pam's workshop was just the encouragement I needed to create and share an actual act after spending quarantine months building puppets.


Pam provided a well organized method, provided specific and helpful feedback, and shared links that offered further enrichment.


The entire experience was supportive and a wonderful mix of play and inspiration."

- Mobi Warren, New Mexico

"Pam Severns is a fantastic mentor/motivator, and I was delighted to be able to take a workshop with her!


This workshop really got me out of a quarantine related creative slump and made me excited to work with puppets again. Putting together a strong slam piece that you can actually perform solo makes slam performances much more accessible/ doable, and Pam is here to help you do it."

"I have performed 'Sleep Tight' for 3 puppet slams so far and plan on submitting it to more!"
