Shadow puppet workshop with artist, Megan Spencer

September 1, 2018 - 13:00 - 15:00

This workshop is intergenerational, open to all ages, 4-100! $5-kids $10 Adults

Shadow Puppetry has been around for thousands of years, originating in China and India. This unique form of storytelling is the oldest type of puppetry in the world! Come see some of these puppets in action in the telling of the ‘Origins of Shadow Puppetry’, where you’ll meet several shadow puppets from different traditions. Megan will then offer a demonstration of all the materials on hand and some basic methods to make your own shadow puppet and then we’ll make our own play behind the shadow screen!
