November 2020 Guild Meeting & Rod Marionette Workshop on Zoom

Rod Marionette Workshop & Guild Meeting
November 22, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. PST | Zoom

Have you ever wanted to make a marionette that is simple to operate, or a rod puppet that has more movement? The Bohemian rod puppet is both. The Bohemian rod marionette has a simple control that manipulates the legs and arms. We are lucky enough to be able to feature Monica Leo to introduce us to this art and show us how to construct one of these wonderful puppets.

This technique is adaptable for animals, people and fantasy creatures. It is the perfect puppet technique to use with the pop up stage that Monica taught earlier this year.

Our program will include: 

  • 3:30 PM Guild Meeting: Get the latest news from the Board on upcoming guild events and puppet happenings in the Bay Area and beyond
  • 4 PM Rod Marionette Workshop with Monica Leo: Since 1975, Monica has been creating and performing as founder and principal puppeteer of Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre, West Liberty, Iowa. Eulenspiegel has performed at numerous regional, national and international festivals and has toured in 31 states and four other countries. 

This meeting is free to attend and will be hosted on Zoom! Please sign up for the meeting and/or workshop at
