Over deze cursus

I invite you to a course that combines learning new technical skills; experiencing different materials; and creating a character based on table-top puppet concept.

I will first guide you through sculpting a puppets head and hands from two different non-toxic types of clay.

We will then work from objects and materials which you have gathered from the street, the forest, the recycle bin, or grandmas attic. We will listen to the stories that live already in these objects and let them help us create an expressive character full of potential.

I will demonstrate how to create the bodies and costumes from these items and how to assemble them. The final realization will be an amazing blend of old and new stories, as well as old and new techniques. 

This course is based on a masterclass I taught in Belgium at Le Centre de la Marionnette, Tournai. I was pleasantly surprised by the results, and I have been looking forward to repeating it.
