Puppet Making


February 16, 2013

Construct your own puppets when you visit the Big Top Shadow Circus in MAKESHOP! Armed only with paper and safety scissors, guest makers Murphi Cook and Zach Dorn will lead visitors in the construction of their very own puppet acts. Once cut, the miniature ringmasters can step into the spotlight and show off their death defying feats of shadow spectacular. 

Zach Dorn is a puppeteer and theatre artist who explores new territory for puppetry through his "spectacles" and live streaming puppet shows filmed in such unusual locations. Zach will be back at the Museum in March for a series of performances. Check our calendar for more details.
