International Thespian Festival Workshop

It was honestly one of the best experiences I had at the Festival and by far my favorite workshop. I hadn’t had much interest in puppetry as a practice or art form before attending your workshop but to be frank, you were absolutely inspiring…you have totally opened my eyes up to this really beautiful art form and I wanted to thank you. The idea that you can portray and evoke so much emotion and feeling through a medium like puppets is really fascinating to me and I’m so glad that I was able to take your workshop.
