Make a Roser-style scarf marionette, a family workshop! Explore your creativity together in an inter-generational puppetry workshop for ages 6 and over. Using scarf fabric, 5 balls, 4 strings and a controller made of rulers, you will create a marionette that can come to life and walk, dance, and even fly. Learn the basics of marionette manipulation and then show off your marionette in a closing group dance performance.

Jane Catherine Shaw is a longstanding La MaMa resident artist. She interweaves imaginative characters and stories to make one exciting piece of theatre for young audiences. She is the curator of La MaMa Puppet Slam.
