Recently Wendy (AD of WPTS) had a terrific time leading an online presentation with patrons of the Vancouver Island Library system. She screened a puppet show video called Tube Worms, which features lovely shadowy underwater puppets and a precocious Sally hand puppet. Then she went Behind the Scenes to show the puppets and props and share more ideas on making puppets for the dark – like blacklight and LED puppets. The audience from all over the Island, Haida Gwaii to Ladysmith, had lots of questions and comments – “your puppets are awesome”, “the vampire squid was my favourite”, “My kid was clearly inspired”
As WPTS strives to present fact-based science, together with puppet fun, it was thrilling to receive this feedback from someone who knows! “I wanted to write to Wendy and give her an A+ on her tube worm anatomy. I’m a deep sea explorer and I’ve seen the ocean floor and hydrothermal vents, and her animals are perfect. I’m happy she’s sharing her love for the deep!”
