In this one-day workshop, you will sew a simple cloth puppet at Big Oak Canyon with Earthroots instructor, Ms. Raz.

Slowing down and doing useful, repetitive movements with your hands is a fun and healthy way to relax the mind and body. Use your imagination and make your creation come alive.

Once the puppet is complete, you may choose to further embellish your puppet. Raz will give oral and written recommendations on how to add facial features and clothes. All materials to complete one stringed puppet will be included.

About the Instructors

Raz Allen teaches Forest Kindergarten and Homeschool Field Class at Earthroots Field School. She fell in love with Earthroots programs when her then 8-year-old joined a wilderness survival class.
