Making a Puppet Costume


By taking this workshop you will give your puppet the finishing touches that will accentuate its character. And idea ‘who’ you like to create? All you have to bring is a good pair of scissors – Supplied are your puppet body, pattern, fabrics, sewing supplies and the use of a sewing machine. We start at 9:00 am sharp!
