As a rule I don’t generally post about puppet building workshops here, but this one is taking place a mere 20 meteres or so from where I happen to typing this, so I’ll consider it fair game. If you’re in or near Toronto this weekend, Unraku is hosting a marionette making workshop with Kelly Kirkham on Sunday. Kelly (see previous post) is a very talented illustrator and puppet builder here in T.O. who makes truly beautiful, old fashioned paper-mâché hand puppets and marionettes; you can see some example of her work at www.runrabbitrun.ca.
Space in the workshop is limited, but there are still some spots available. Full details are available on the Unraku Blog.
