GIANT PUPPET MAKING & PARADE ART 101

SIGN UP TODAY!

After the excitement of 2022’s inaugural Krewe du Cattywampus, we are looking forward to the next installment of the Big Ears Parade! Are you interested in joining in on the art making process? Cattywampus Puppet Council will be holding Giant Puppet Making & Parade Art 101 workshops this November. 

These workshops are designed for teachers, community leaders, and any other individuals ages 13 & up who would like to learn how to design and create giant puppets and other parade art for this spring’s Big Ears Parade on Saturday, April 1st, 2023.

The focus will be on papier-mâché, cardboard sculpting, rigging, and other methods for making inexpensive parade art. There will not be enough time for participants to complete their own project during this workshop, but each participant will receive a Giant Puppet Making & Parade Art Manual to take home, plenty of hands-on experience, and time to work on their own design/brainstorm a project for their group. 

Space is limited & you can sign up here
