Learn How To Make Marionettes
Have you ever wanted to learn how to carve wooden puppets?....
...if so you have come to the right place.
I am professional marionette maker and woodcarver with many years of puppet making and performing experience. I have put together this site as a resource for people who can't make it to one of my (or anyone else's) workshops.
Whilst learning in a workshop/classroom environment is probably the most rewarding option it is of course not always convenient or affordable for the majority of people. I would recommend attending a hands on type course if possible but for everyone who can't manage that there is this site and the projects I have put together.
For a fraction of the price of a residential course you can stream/download my on-line video tutorials and learn how to make great marionettes and other wooden puppets.
These projects will guide you through the entire process step by step. There will be 8-10 projects in total including shorts for special techniques such as moving eyes/mouths and 'trick' puppets.
It starts with my first project - which is available now - to build a 4 string a wire marionette. You can watch the entire process from start to finish with nearly 6 hours of HD video covering all the techniques you will require.
Each new project will build on the skills attained until you can create complex but balanced performance puppets. For each project there will be free plans available to download.
Projects are available to buy(stream/download) individually or you can become a full student with access to all the projects as soon they become available as well as other hints and tips and many other perks. click here for full details.
So lets get on and make some puppets.
