Let’s have some FUN!!!
Come and make your own puppet.
With our small class size,(Max 8 students) We can take the time to help you make a puppet that you will take home, display proudly, and actually use or give as a gift. Even big people have fun in our classes.
First, you choose your favorite abandoned, cleaned, and gently used stuffed animal from our stock, or recycle a (former) favorite from home. Just like a rescue shelter for dogs or cats, we've got lots of lonely (but lovely) animals awaiting adoption in many sizes and colors, but only one is just right for you or your child . Then we help you or your child modify and remake the animal into a magical fantasy creation limited only by your imagination. We've got boxes full of outfits, sparkly stuff, accessories and fun things to help create the perfect companion.

Limit of eight attendees per session, so reservations are important $25.00 admission. Best for ages 5-adult. (You will be working with scissors & hot-glue)
