Hand Armature for Puppets

Every fingerprint is unique and so is every puppet! But how do you make the armature inside the hand and still have room for the arm rods and everything else?

This live workshop will show you an easy way to make your hand armature that will make the best use of the material as well as provide a solid structure for your puppet.

Follow along as we make the hands in real time with tips and tricks you can repeat at home.

Level: Beginner/Intermediate: Ages 17-Adult
