Vox Fabuli Adds Puppet Building to Fall 2014 Class Lineup

Vox Fabuli Puppets introduces a brand new puppet building class as part of their Fall 2014 class line-up.

"'When are you going to teach us how to make puppets?' is a question I get asked fairly often," said Vox Fabuli owner Rachel Jackson. "It was a matter of creating a pattern that was appropriate for a class. This summer I finally got time to sit down and do that."

Basic Puppet Building - Animals

~ 1-Day Class: Saturday, September 6th from 10am-5pm

~ 3-Week Class: Saturdays, Sept 27 - Oct 11 from 11am-1pm

Walk in with a sad, naked hand and walk out with a fabulous new puppet friend in this basic class. Dip your toe into the wide, weird waters of puppet construction: cutting, sewing (hand and machine) and hot gluing your way to a finished puppet. Instructor Rachel Jackson will guide you step-by-step as you create one of five animals: Dog, Cat, Bear, Bunny or Unicorn.

Beginning Stage Puppeteering

Sundays, Sept 28 - Oct 12, 1-4pm

In this fun, dynamic class, you'll learn the foundations of good stage puppetry - focus, physical commitment and basic puppet operation. Students learn the fundamentals of Muppet-style puppeteering through a combo of easy exercises, wicked challenges and practical scene work. Over the 3 weeks, you'll get lots of hands-on time with professional puppets plus a simple practice puppet to take home so you can keep working on your skills. Working in the realm of visible puppeteering, we'll explore both arm-and-rod and live hand puppets.

~ No puppet experience required.

~ Please dress comfortably and be ready to move.

Cost: $160 per class. Both classes will be held at the Inscape Arts Building, Studio 230, 815 Seattle Blvd South, Seattle, WA 98134. *Classes recommended for ages 15 and up. *Class sizes limited to 8.
