Marionette Art - August 20, 2018
Marionettes (string puppets) and hand puppets were made from a variety of materials. The head and hands of the puppets were often made of wood while the body and other details made of leather, cloth, and glass. After the Spanish conquest of Mexico, arts of Spain and Europe influenced the indigenous artists.
Our class will teach basic construction and provide basic materials to complete on marionette in the style and attitude of your choice. If you would like to embellish with additional materials, feel free to bring to class.
