Shadow Puppet Workshop

In this shadow puppet workshop participants will take images from home (“home” in this case being the island of Newfoundland) in order to create characters, scenery, and props. Specifically, we will take inspiration from nature, such as a puddle, a shadow, a tree, a plant, or from a map, and create characters and places for the shadow puppets to exist.
