Puppets for People Workshop

9/23/2019 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM PT

A hands-on workshop
September 29th, 1:00-4:00pm


This is a three-hour workshop that teaches some of the methods of The H.E.AT. Collective focusing specifically on our puppet building techniques.

First, we build the “brain” of the puppet; the heads are filled with secrets, wishes, dreams or meaningful objects. Then we cover the brain in newspaper and find the face of the puppet.  We hold and mold the face with masking tape, and then the faces are decorated.  Finally, the puppeteers write short plays for the puppets and perform small shows with their new creations.  These puppets allow workshop participants to tell their stories freely with hands, body and voice. 

These workshops, done in Palestine, Israel, India, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, and all over Europe and the U.S., with kids from age 4-18 and with all types of adult groups serve local individuals by encouraging self expression and community’s building.


Registration for this event is closed.
