Scrunch & Sculpt -
Over the years I have created many puppet show props and lovely large puppets by using the traditional papier mache method of dipping pieces of paper into a paste mixture to cover the sculpted shape. I have tested out various glues, sealers, paints and finishes for all the projects, and I just love the feel of the paste and the textures created. From huge puppet snow forts, witch's cauldrons and trees, down to rocks and miniature cakes, all were enjoyably crafted using a papier mache method.

Students will sculpt heads, features and hands from "scrunched" up paper. A finish is created using a "brushed" papier mache method along with coloured tissue paper. Very little drying time is needed. Shoulder supports, stuffed fabric arms, accents and rods are added to complete an original puppet character. A theatre will be available for brief puppet performances.
