Inspired by Indonesian rod puppets, artist Sheela Das will lead participants in making simple papier-mâché and painted puppet heads on wooden dowels with fabric bodies. This is a three-workshop series, although participants may attend as many as desired. The first session will be for creating the structure (head), with the second and third sessions for painting and creating the body. Participants can bring their own fabric to craft doll outfits—transform baby clothes or old pajamas! Participants will be encouraged to bring their puppets to Parade the Circle on Saturday, June 10.   

Free. All ages. All experience levels. Supplies included. Reserve your spot by emailing commartsinfo [at]
