The 2nd Annual Nick Barone Memorial Puppet Workshop

The Art of the Shadow Puppet
With Wendy Morton,

This exceptional workshop is an introduction to the fundamentals of the traditional style of shadow puppetry where puppets are moved against a screen. Techniques used by Richard Bradshaw, Australia’s master shadow puppeteer will be featured. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with shadow puppetry, learn about manipulation, lighting, and materials for construction. Everyone will build and take home their own shadow puppet.
Wendy Morton, shadow puppet artist and manager at Folkmanis Puppets has performed shows that toured England and Germany and participated in an intensive workshop with Richard Bradshaw last summer at the O’Neill National Puppetry Conference.
Note: Participants, please bring a bag lunch.
If you can, please bring any of the following: good scissors, xactos, needle nose pliers, drills, pencils,
