Puppet Workshop

Student Amanda with her Puppet

Professor: Chuck Stigliano

An introduction to the basics of movable dynamic figures (possibly human but possibly otherwise) in a variety of materials which respond to the action of the human hand (or, conceivably, other body parts).

Through lectures, demonstrations and assigned projects, this course will cover the creation of a variety of movable joints. The class will concern itself with an assortment of means of providing and delivering motivation from human students to otherwise inanimate puppets, either directly or with such means as strings, rods or other connectors.

Put simply, we want to make puppets, we want them to be movable and we want to make them move.
