What's better than watching puppets?

Making your own!!

Join the us for a fun workshop to make and take a puppet of your own design!

After we build, we practice.  You will learn to work your puppet and bring it to life.

All ages welcome, no experience necessary!

All workshops are held at The Art Factory  193 West 2100 South SLC, UT
