Class Description: We will create characters from pre-sewn felt puppets and use them to play games, including “Puppet Says” (like Simon Says); “Sardines” (a hiding game); and “Follow the Puppet Leader.” Through play, we’ll learn a lot about ease, trust and acting.

About the Instructor: After studying traditional puppetry in Taiwan for three years, Margaret Moody began incorporating the acrobatic movements of the Taiwanese style into her own hand puppet shows, which feature the Monkey King, fairies and trolls. Currently she works as a solo puppeteer in schools, community centers and libraries and with the troupe Galapagos Puppets for museum and school audiences.
