PUPPET MAKER seen here with friends - some of my papier mâché rod puppets:
I usually make Rod Puppets and occasionally marionettes. They are constructed from a variety of materials such as cloth, wood, papier mâché, plastic pipe and other things found around the house.
I conduct workshops covering all stages of puppet creation and performance. We start with soggy newsprint and a group of eager puppeteers and end up with a play.
Some examples are:
Everybody Has a Dream - Christmas play, Halifax
Earth Festival Play - 1996
Earth Day Festival, Halifax
Jenni's Puppet Links
The Merten / McKay Puppetry Collection, Ontario - A great resource for puppetry and related books.
Mermaid Theatre, Nova Scotia
Heard Instinct, New Brunswick
Théâtre entre chien et loup, Quebec
