This workshop series will follow the making process of a ceramic faced hand puppet in a little smock frock - from design sketching to completion. Over the three weeks we will use hand-building & simple ceramic glazing techniques to make our puppets. Over three consecutive weeks we will host afternoons of making with final afternoon/evening feast...
The workshops will be held on Sunday 16th, Sunday 23rd (from 1pm - 5pm) and Saturday 29th of October from 5pm onwards....
Week 1 - Introduction, Designing & Building
Week 2 - Glazing & Decoration
Week 3 - Assembly & Feast of Dollies
We will first look at making designing and building faces & hands from clay, which will then be fired in the kiln in preparation for the next week. Tools & clay will be provided. The second stage will be to glaze and decorate the puppets. Help will be available to advise and select suitable glazes and decoration for the ceramics parts. Some materials will also be provided to make clothing, skins, scales, wigs & props for the puppets, but of course if you have a specific material in mind please bring along.
In the final week, following the glaze firing we will assemble the components and finesse the final forms.
And we invite you to assemble your final puppet and show them together while drinking and eating at the Feast of Dollies on the final afternoon/evening.
£95 for all three workshops, materials and tools will be provided.
