Open Eye Figure Theatre says
This is a six week intensive Workshop with Kurt Hunter. Each participant will design and construct a basic, nine string marionette. The primary materials will be wood and paper mache. The workshop will cover various types of jointing, weight distribution, control design and stringing. Costuming will be discussed, but construction of costumes will not be a part of the workshop. Basic manipulation will also be covered. Experience with wood working power tools is helpful, but not required. No previous experience assumed or necessary.

Teacher: Kurt Hunter
