Talk about a unique, hands-on experience.  This summer, let your teen's creativity flow with a puppet making class at Vox Fabuli Puppets.  Seattle-based puppet artist Rachel Jackson designs, builds, teaches and otherwise fulfills all your puppet needs.  Here’s a complete roundup of classes.  Note, classes are recommended for ages 15 and up. 


Basic Puppet Building - Animals 

Saturday, August 12

10am - 5:00pm

Cost: $175

Walk in with a sad, naked hand and walk out with a fabulous new puppet friend in this beginning class. Spend your day immersed in the hands-on experience of basic puppet construction: cutting, sewing (hand and machine) and hot gluing your way to a finished puppet. Your teacher will guide you step-by-step as you create one of five animals: Dog, Cat, Bear, Bunny or Unicorn…or any animal your imagination can devise.  Registration ends: August 10th


Intro to Stage Puppeteering 

Saturday, September 9


Cost: $45 pre-registration/$55 day-of

In this fun, dynamic class, you'll learn the foundations of good stage puppetry - focus, physical commitment and basic puppet operation. Seattle-based puppeteer Rachel Jackson will teach you how to make your puppet seem alive and connect with your audience. You'll get lots of hands-on time with professional arm-and-rod puppets plus a simple practice puppet to take home so you can keep working on your skills.


All classes are held at the Inscape Arts Building, Studio 230
