Beginning Puppetry Workshop
Taught by Erik Kuska
Puppetry, like improv, can appear ‘easy’ and ‘effortless,’ yet proficiency comes from learning proper technique. And once you learn those fundamentals, puppetry can unlock characters and worlds, you never knew were inside you.
In this 3 hour workshop, we’ll cover the basics of ‘hand and rod’ puppetry (Muppet style), and through improv games and exercises, explore fun, new ways puppetry can share your voice with the world.
We’ll have demo puppets for use during the workshop, or you may bring your own. We hope you can join us!
— Erik Kuska has puppeteered on MST3K, the Pee Wee Herman Show, Garfunkel & Oates, MTV’s Greatest Party Stories Ever, and has performed in over 100 childrens shows around LA. He’s a former teacher at PUPPET SCHOOL and will be teaching this summer at the National Puppetry Festival, and is excited to bring more puppetry to iO!
