Are you looking for a different way to tap into your creativity? Are you ready to experience the curiosity, wonder, and empathy that puppetry naturally inspires? Under the guidance of puppeteer and poet Mobi Warren, workshop participants will build a simple hand puppet from paper mâché and cloth, and breathe life into the personality that emerges. The process may culminate in a poem, a short prose piece, or a monologue puppet script. Participants will be encouraged to sense the livingness in the materials used and to explore unexpected insights that emerge as the puppet acquires form. No puppetry experience is required to attend this workshop, and writers of all levels are welcome.
