Unmatched in artistry, grace, and refinement of movement, the internationally acclaimed Cashore Marionettes redefine the art of puppetry. In this virtual masterclass with Joseph Cashore, participants will begin to discover and understand what goes into creating a good marionette. A variety of working examples (ranging from simple beginner marionettes to some more sophisticated and theatrical) will be presented. Participants will learn about the design of the controls, the proper stringing, puppet anatomy, balance, the distribution of weight, and the construction of the joints. Working drawings, tools, and raw materials will be presented as well as parts of marionettes that have been made with different materials. Questions are encouraged. The workshop is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is required.
