Create your own character hand puppet in one day!
Take home a finished hand puppet on a wooden stand to display in your home or give the puppet as a present for your child or grandchild for that upcoming Christmas.

In the class I will show you how to: 

1 - Create a character for your puppet 
I will help you create a puppet character. It could be an animal from within your own household or a puppet child, a princess, a warrior, etc..


2 - Make the puppet and mount it on the wooden stand
Using my unique non-sewing method, each person can finish the puppet in a one day workshop and mount it on a provided stand to take home with them.
    

Day 1: Morning - Creating the Character  
I will help you create a character.
Then, I  will help you sketch and incorporate your idea into a final design.
Next, we will transfer the sketch onto fabric.
Then, we will gather all the fun detail decorations together before we break for lunch. 

Day 1: Afternoon - Making the Puppet
I will show you how to fabricate the puppet using my non-sewing method. 
Then, we will complete your unique puppet by detailing it with feathers, interesting items and bling and then mount it on the stand for 
you to take home.
