Giant Wearable Puppet Workshop
August 5 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT$5
CV/A is offering a Giant Puppet workshop on August 5, 6 & 7 (3-day workshop)! 10am-4pm each day.
Participation is open to all, some basic skills required. Instructors for the workshop are local Sculptors, Bill Friesen and Jeff Hartbower.
All puppets will be made of cardboard and the size will be approximately 3 to 4 feet in height and will take the form of a large mask.
All materials & tools will be available on site, however you’re welcome to bring your own if you wish. Supply list provided with tickets.
Building these puppets will be a fun experience and it is anticipated that the finished puppets will be included in the Salish Sea Festival: Week of Lanterns and other community events such as parades and possibly a Hallowe’en/Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead event. As you will be putting considerable time and effort into making the puppet we would like to create the opportunity for the community to marvel at you creativity during community events and festivals.
This event is supported by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program.
