While the Ballard Institute is closed, the museum will offer short, puppet-building and craft workshops via Facebook Live (http://facebook.com/BallardInstitute/) every Wednesday and Friday at 2 p.m. ET! All past workshops are available on our Facebook and YouTube.

Cardboard has unlimited possibilities! Join UConn Puppet Arts graduate student Felicia Cooper on June 24 to learn methods of attachment, ways of folding, scoring, and slicing that can be used in a variety of ways! This will be an exploration of material and techniques, and we’ll build a simple puppet from a cereal box! Recommended for ages 8+ (or adult supervision-potential sharp stuff!).

Materials needed: cardboard, hot glue, tape, utility blade, scissors, water, and markers

Felicia is leading this workshop with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts.
