Make Your Vision a Reality

This hands-on, interactive, introductory workshop is designed to motivate you to make your vision a reality. 

Using the same basic techniques used at the Center, Carole D'Agostino, the Center's Puppet Shop Manager, will take you from story development to simple puppet construction and future planning. 

Whether you’re a new puppeteer or a seasoned professional, this workshop will help you begin a new show or revive an old idea.
