Camp Kala • Imaginative Puppets for Storytellers • Ages 6-11

Join us as we bring our stories to life through puppetry! Puppetry allows us to stretch our imagination, and to be builders, writers, designers, performers, and illustrators all at once. Together, we will spend the week building colorful, new puppet characters and their stories. Participants will work mostly with paper and explore other materials such as recycled materials, fabric, and found objects. Through material exploration, building techniques, and design choices, we will learn how to tell stories and create our own expansive worlds in a whole new way.
