Carve a Little Marionette Puppet

Learn the old and nearly forgotten craft of carving a stringed marionette puppet straight from a small branch. You'll learn to find the puppet in the tree, design, carve using just a whittling knife and small axe, and slowly create a timeless little companion to join you on life's adventures. There are only a handful of people making puppets this way throughout the world, so join professional wood carver and craftsman, Jeff Donne to learn the pleasures of slow carving and breathing new life into an old craft and a new hand carved friend.  

The workshop fee includes all materials, tools for use and safety aprons. Participants only need to wear covered shoes and a smile. BYO lunch, or pick up lunch and coffee from a local cafe.
