About this event

Discover your inner puppeteer and come join professional Spectacle Puppetry Artist Karen Hethey in a creative adventure to make your own bird puppet or mask character as part of the Ngurra Nyujunggamu – When The World Was Soft Project for the Red Earth Arts Festival 2022.

Learn how to use simple techniques in cane bending, paper mache, up-cycled materials and basic mechanism design to make a fantastic puppet that you can bring to life with just a bit of your imagination!

This is a hands on arts workshop and under the supervision of the artist participants will be working with some tools including, hand held cordless drills, Stanley knives, sewing needles, hot glue guns, pva glue and acrylic paint.
