puppet by unit: printmaking, puppet making, animation
The Animation Chamber
In this workshop, participants will create their own paper
puppet and stamp. Participants will learn the basics of creating
a paper puppet, stamp making and how to proportion a figure.
They will then use the stamp to measure, plan, and create the
different elements of their puppets. Participants are
encouraged to experiment with whimsical and unconventional
imagery; the workshop is a practical and an experimental
exercise to stimulate and educate a variety of makers.
