In an open workshop environment that encourages experimentation with new materials, this introductory course will focus on developing the skills necessary to build a puppet for stop-motion animation. We will look at different puppet traditions from around the world, and students will be encouraged to gather their own visual inspiration. Each student's research and vision will drive the design process so that every puppet is unique and personalized. Students will learn methods of puppet construction, including sculpture in clay and build-up techniques with foam, cloth, and other materials. We will cover armature-making skills with both wire and steel, and students will gain hands-on experience building molds from plaster and rubber, and casting in both resin and skinlike silicone rubber. By the end of the semester, each student will have a puppet ready to step in front of the lights and animation cameras...one frame at a time.
