We've all felt out of our element at one point or another, and while each individuals' narrative my vary, the desire to belong or to fit in is often so compelling that it can sometimes drive us to a dark space. It is my sincere hope that this video will reach out to someone, anyone, who feels or has ever felt unwanted, unloved, or just out of place. Please know that it's okay to be different.
One of the things I really like about puppet building is that it draws upon such a wide variety of skills. Students learn how to cut fabric from a paper pattern, work with foam, learn about fabric nap and grain lines, learn how to sew darts, apply proper pinning technique, practice hand stitching, and best of all, get to explore their creative side by customizing their designs!
