Animators develop a vocabulary of movement to bring their characters to life, and puppeteers are no different. That’s why we sometimes call puppetry “live animation.”

Puppeteers can lay their hands on almost anything — or inside of almost anything — and give that thing the illusion of life, of breath, of feelings, and of course the illusion of thought. Learn some of the basics of live animation using the friendliest and most easily found puppets of all time – the good old fashioned stuffed animal.
Bring your own teddy bears — or teddy rabbits, teddy dragons, teddy whateveryouwants — and puppeteer Mike Petersen will help you hone your tabletop puppetry chops. Now your stuffies will walk, talk, think, act and react, create stories, and perform poetry by practicing the essential elements of puppetry – with precision, simplicity, clarity, and fun!
