Ever wanted to learn how to make your very own muppe... err... monster puppet ? Well, this is the workshop for you! Spend three hours with a professional puppeteer to learn the techniques and build a simple hand operated monster puppet head.
In 3 hours you will build a simple hand operated monster puppet head. First, you will construct a felt a mouth plate. Then you'll choose from a few head shape patterns and cut and stitch (with the Henson stitch!) a fun fur head and then attach the mouth plate into it. From that point, it’s all decoration with eyes, tongue and whichever other adornments you would like to add to make it your very own, personalized, monster puppet!
