This introductory workshop will focus on how to make paper stop motion puppets, and will give participants a chance to try out classic top-down cutout animation, silhouette, and collage techniques. By the end of the workshop everyone will get the opportunity to see their puppet come to life and get under the camera and animate. Materials provided.
