PuppetCon workshop

Making a Foam Head Puppet (for adults)


We do start with a basic template but spend time exploring ways to modify it to make your characters personal and unique, so they match the puppet idea you decide on. We talk about sculpting the foam into shapes and textures to add awesome accessories. Next, we add embellishments with various materials to give your puppet the desired result: foam, latex, paint, felt, fabric, or furs. Last is always painting. With whatever time is remaining, students can get a quick lesson on how to use their puppet.
