Soft Sculpture Puppets
Taught by Davey K
August 25, 10:30 AM - 3:30 PM
3052 W Carroll Ave, Chicago IL
Cost: $80. Includes materials.

In this day-long workshop, visual artist and puppeteer Davey K. will shepherd you through the building process he uses to make fantastical and functional soft sculpture puppets. Using flexible fabric and simple sewing, Davey will show you the ropes of how to build humanoid puppet forms by arranging and connecting pillowy shapes to each other. When the workshop is done, you’ll walk home with a brand new puppet of your own creation!

Davey Krofta is a visual artist from Cleveland, Ohio, where he obtained a degree in fiber and material studies. His work focuses on telling stories and entertaining people while exploring material processes and mediums.
