Puppetry Classes Bring Out the Best in Kids (and Adults)!

Imagine creating a character of your own design, then bringing that character to life before friends and family.  The Puppet Co. offers several classes for kids, and for adults that want to make puppets with kids. Both puppet making and performance are taught by the experts that create the exquisite productions on the Puppet Co. stage.  Click titles for details.

a penguin, an elf, or a Santa puppet. Each parent/child pair will choose to make a penguin, an elf, or a Santa puppet, then use basic sewing skills to make its costume, then add facial features and cute extras such as hats and scarves. A tutorial in manipulation of the new puppet wraps up the class.

Age Range: Ages 4-10 • $60 for parent & 1 child.
