Puppet Power workshop - Song/Book

Puppet Power: Festival of Ideas TicketsPuppet Power Workshop  – Song/Book

This ONLINE puppet power workshop  – Song/Book is a  Multidisciplinary workshop/demo where participants will make a unique and personal “artbook”. Celebrate your connection with art and story!

In this workshop and demo, musician and multidisciplinary artist Alexandra Gorlin-Crenshaw will share about her process making the handmade miniature pieces she calls Song/Books. She will then guide participants in making their own handmade book to pair with a song, poem, story, or other inspiration of their choice. Please note that no previous art experience is required, and – in spite of the title, you do not have to choose a song. This workshop may be of interest for anyone who has experience in one artistic domain and wants to explore making connections with other art forms.

Alexandra is interested in ritual and celebration through art – the comfort, connection, joy, and wholeness we may feel when we engage in our own creative rituals. Alexandra’s Song/Book workshop is perfect for anyone wanting to celebrate their connection with art and storytelling! Each participant will be encouraged to make something unique and personal, beginning with this simple and elegant starting point.


Participants are encouraged to bring a poem, story, image, song, or other inspiration that is meaningful to them.
