Gabrielle offers a puppetry workshop/class. This workshop is great for camps, troops*, and schools.
*Gabrielle can help you earn badges for members of your troop (like American Heritage and Frontier Girls) through her workshop.
Gabrielle has created an interactive hour-long presentation prepared for kids of all age ranges. Information packets are passed out and the kids will follow along with Gabrielle as she covers the following topics:
-A Puppeteer’s Purpose
-Different Types of Puppets
-Making a Puppet
While doing this packet, she will show the kids some of the puppets she has created. After the packet is finished, the kids will have the opportunity to look at the puppets and try them out.
Total time: 1 hour
This area of the workshop is still evolving. Currently, the puppetry camp involves the creation of what Gabrielle calls "modified sock puppets". These sock puppets have mouth plates sewn in, allowing the puppet to be much more expressive. Gabrielle brings plenty of decorations and fun pieces to make all sorts of amazing puppets.
Eventually, Gabrielle would like to tackle more elaborate puppet building in these workshops.
