Children (4-12) & Adults: $15

We’ll be making rod puppet characters from yarn, long grass or raffia and complete them with found leaves and other natural materials.  We’ll play some classic picnic games with our puppets – a three-legged race with a puppet? We’ll write and video a puppet poem about the long lazy days of summer – everyone gets to say one line! Workshop starts at 1pm but you are invited to bring your own lunch and join us for a picnic at 12noon!  Rain or shine (we have shelter)

Edworthy Park, Site #2: We are located on the South side of the river and rail-road tracks. Parking is available on the south side, 5050 Spruce Dr SW or on the North side of the River along Memorial Drive. This is a sunny location so please dress accordingly.10268670_898838590172299_6316789687610345989_n
