Ping Pong's Puppet Workshop

July 25, 2001

Well, here we are nine days since the last page. We attended another Renaissance Faire this past weekend -- Sherwood Robin Hood Days in Sherwood, Oregon.

Rather than devote an entire page to it here, you can just click here and you'll be magically whisked away to the St. Wolfgang's site where there are two pages of pictures covering the event. Just use your "back" button to return here.

This page is a collection of unfinished business, as we transition from the making of the hard body parts to starting to put them all together in their final form.

Oh what a lovely mess

1.Oh, what a lovely mess. Looks like its time to pick up (again). The big roll of stuff behind Steve's left shoulder is the sewable foam from which we will make the Sea Serpent.

Hans & The Little Girl Finished

2.Larry Adrian has been busy with the puppets for his Hans Christian Andersen show. Here we see them a lot more finished than in our last shots back on page 12.

The arrival of fabric to the [project

3. Steve and Nancy went fabric shopping today. Here are some of the fabrics they bought, along with a few acessories. The heads and hands are laid in to get a preview of the final results.

Lower jaw of the Sea Monster

4.Here, Steve is working on the lower jaw of the Sea Monster. It will be made from cloth mache like the serpent head, but is movable, so it is made separately.
