Have you ever pondered the life of a piece of driftwood? Have you ever picked it up in your hands and discovered reaching fingers or a twisted face? Have you ever imagined what it could transform into? Join us for a workshop series dedicated to that curiosity! Taking Pageant puppet workshops for a new turn, returning puppeteer Ian McFarlane will facilitate an exploration in a well-known puppet tradition: the marionette. Try your hand at wood carving, learn the basics of scenic painting and experience the joy of bringing a puppet to life through its strings. Over the course of 4 weeks, we will design and build our very own marionettes, each of which will be featured in The River Clyde Pageant.
All ages welcome, no experience necessary. Workshops take place at the New Glasgow Christian Church. Please be advised that we will be using sharp tools and that participants under the age of 14 should be accompanied by an adult.
