Our recruitment drive for 1000 Finger Puppets is off to a super start with submissions already! We’ve got early representation from the under 14 crowd. Lili & Cole hail from Burnaby, Katie is from Toronto, and Simone is based in St. Catharines. I’m impressed that Katie skipped the sewing step and went straight for the glue-gun – her technique of wrapping a paper tube in pipe-cleaner is one I’ve not seen before. I’m a little worried that Cole’s dynamite may be loaded – will his puppet be allowed to travel to the exhibit? Lili’s bunny inspires me to go for the cute-factor – aahhhh. As for Simone, I enjoyed witnessing both her creative process and art direction this summer – she knows how to costume design and direct the adults already!
One of the reasons we launched Puppet-A-Go-Go was to inspire folks to create. We enjoy the results of their imaginations come to life!
