Production Animotion is Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s, Institute of Puppetry Arts puppet making workshop intensive.
The Production Animotion Intensive is a program designed for persons with an interest in exploring the art of puppet construction and related building techniques in a nurturing and challenging environment. The 5-day intensive will focus on three separate construction techniques commonly used by puppet sculptors for Mermaid Theatre’s international touring shows.
Participants will learn to sculpt, and mold, puppet heads by manipulating a variety of materials as well as create puppet bodies. The Intensive will be led by veteran Mermaid sculptors, Jim Morrow and Struan Robertson, with assistance from Mermaid’s Production Department personnel. At the conclusion of the Intensive, each participant will leave with new knowledge, technical skills, and three newly built puppets.
