Puppet Anatomy 101 


Building a creature is a monstrous task but if you want to learn, you have to start somewhere!

The learning process becomes less scary and more manageable when a monster project is broken down into 'sub-monster' parts!  


Learn to design, build and animate with StageWorthy Artist, Melissa Patrello, who takes you through creature anatomy with a series of 4 workshops based on her style of puppet making.

Each workshop offers professional insight with a step by step, hands-on approach to building form, fabricating joints, creating features, constructing mechanisms and so much more!  For teens - adults (13 and up), $125 + $25 materials fee)
