Have you ever wanted to be a puppeteer? Come and join me for this challenging and fun class and create a Mad Hatter Marionette. This mixed media character is perfect for both the sculptor and the seamstress or those of us who are wannabes!
Create your own Mad Hatter face or follow along with me and I will show you how. I will show how to do simple but effective joints so you have full movement. The Mad Hatter is complete with polymer clay hands, face, feet and jointed limbs. Then make his costume, string him, and become a puppeteer. Just like that!
If you are intimidated with sewing, the costume is very simple and a lot is put together with glue. A little sewing is involved but very simple. You can be as creative as you wish or follow my steps.
