Strategies for Making 1000 Finger Puppets

FullSizeRender (18)By Clelia

As you may have read in a past blog entry, the Puppet-A-Go-Go team is creating a wall of 1000 finger puppets, which will be on display at the Niagara Artists Centre in April. That’s a heck of a lot of finger puppets. Some of them will be created in community workshops, some will be made by us, some have been donated, and some will be made by our friends, families and acquaintances. 

Each member of the Puppet-A-Go-Go team is responsible for pulling together 250 finger puppets, which means two things for me:

1. I have to speed up my finger-puppet production by making some 15-minute finger puppets, such as this guy.

2. For the next four months, every friend who visits me can expect to be cajoled into make a finger puppet (friends, consider this post a warning). The first people to take part were my parents, who made these fantastic finger puppets with me and my daughter over the holidays.
