Mudfoot Theatre's co-artistic directors, Ian McFarlane and Geneviève Paré, will be presenting a workshop at this year's Puppet Power Convention.
Reclaim: Using Found Objects to Create Puppets, Performance and Sound
This two-hour, hands-on crash course in junkyard theatrics explores the creative potential of unusual materials. Discover how to create a puppet out of an old mattress, or invent a new instrument out of a discarded bicycle. Collectively we will investigate how reusing materials is not only a sustainable practice but also an avenue to creative liberation and inspiration.
