Puppet-making workshop and puppet parade — Not just for kids!

Date: August 27, 2022-September 3, 2022

Location: The Folk School, Pioneer Park

Join The Folk School to make puppets and masks from cardboard and recycled material to bring to the Arctic Fest Puppet Parade on Saturday, Sept. 3, at Pioneer Park starting at 2 p.m.

We’ll have three open studio times prior to Arctic Fest to build smaller and larger cardboard masks and puppets around the theme of “The Boreal Forest: The Little Things That Matter” (think big mushrooms, insects, plants, etc.). In collaboration with “In a Time of Change,” your creations will be inspired by a variety of scientific photographs fitting this theme.

This is not a regular class, but a community event. Feel welcome to attend each, some, or part of these days. Register to help with organization, and pay what you can to help with some material and administration cost.

Instructors:  Maite Agopian and Marianne Stolz
