Puppet workshops show children and adults how to create a useful and sturdy hand puppet. Upper elementary students make puppets of historic figures or characters from American literature. Children in primary grades and kindergarten make characters from familiar stories. These puppets are then used to enact the written stories into short plays. Gerwick Puppets conducts puppet workshops that simplify these stories and transform them into puppet dramas.
