Yesterday, on Saturday afternoon, I’ve conducted a Puppetry in Film workshop with Kindergarten age kids, and their parents. They have all been so excited about making a puppet in the style of my puppets- when 2nd and 3rd fingers serve as the legs. They have shown a great deal of fine motor skill in the making of details and different expressions for their puppets. Some parents were making puppets too, letting their kid work by their side..
It was a successful workshop, and though it was only 1 hour long, the kids have all completed their puppets and performed with them in the special area set for just that purpose. You can see the results of their work in the video below:
Thank you for the help- Dalit, Moti, Kim and Shachar, and my special guest, Jonathan!
So many wonderful people- big as small, stopped by to watch my films & puppets at yesterday’s event at the Intrepid. I felt loved and appreciated, and was delighted to see that my high heel boots fit the little kids’ fingers as they were dancing their ways on the table! It was very entertaining, and a humbling experience to see my work relates to kids who I don’t teach and therefore don’t know me personally..
And a big hug to Timmy Young from Puppetry Arts for making this day happen.
Please extend your love and support Wolfy in his journey. It may become yours too.
As part of Kids Week at the Intrepid Museum, on President’s day they have a full day of Puppetry action. It is thanks to Puppetry Arts that this day is taking place.
The Intrepid is actually a Sea, Air & Space Museum, and is located on the West side of Manhattan on Pier 86, 12th Ave. & 46th Street. This event is happening all day, starting 10am. Wolfy & Friends will be there to entertain all of its visitors!
