Ever wondered how the giant puppets for the Festival of the Arts Puppet Parade are made? Here's your chance to find out! Sally and Michelle will be collaboratively working on a new giant puppet for the 2024 Festival of the Arts, and you can join them in making your own "beakie" head. During the workshop, Sally and Michelle will guide you through the process while simultaneously working on the giant puppet. The session will serve as an open studio for puppet making, with personalized guidance from Sally and Michelle. Additionally, you'll gain insights into creating a giant puppet if you're interested in making one for the 2025 festival.

Sunday, March 24, 9 am-11:30 am: Creating the Form Bring your own cardboard, boxboard, etc. Sally and Michelle will assist you in creating the form for your beakie head. If time allows, you can start painting your beakie; acrylic paint and brushes will be provided. Take your beakie home and continue working on it at your own pace.

Sunday, April 14, 9 am-11:30 am: Decorating day! Bring all your craft supplies and share with others to create a unique beakie that is entirely yours. Glue on gems, yarn, fabric, flowers—let your creativity flow! If your beakie isn't finished, no worries! Take it home and continue working on it until the Festival. We invite everyone to join the 2024 Puppet Parade, proudly showcasing their brand new beakie!
