The Children's Museum of Pittsburgh will hold an online workshop for kids on Japanese Karakuri puppets, October 14.
What if you could build puppet versions of your favorite Japanese anime characters and make them appear to move by themselves? Join Georgia based puppeteer, Paulette Richards, as we explore Japanese Karakuri puppets and ways that Karakuri mechanisms have merged with electronics. Together well learn simple mechanisms we can use to animate our own puppet creations! This virtual workshop will be hosted on Zoom and is designed for ages 6-10. Materials to have on hand: scrap cardboard, scrap paper, paper fasteners or paper clips, hole punch, scissors, ruler, glue, pens, pencils or markers.
The 4:00 - 5:30 pm event is free but advance registration is required.
