About your host

I'm a naturalist who dabbles in art and theater. I am fascinated by light and shadow, and love story telling through this medium. I own Neyssasary Shenanigans ecotours & co-own Outdoor Education Adventures, and often use art, including shadow puppets, to involve participants in nature studies.

What we’ll do

I will teach you a technique I created for turning tissue paper and recycled objects into colorful shadow puppets and window hangings. At the end, you will have a puppet of your own creation to take home, plus the knowledge to make more, and perhaps a longing to delve deeper into the world of shadow theater. The puppets look very much like stained glass when they're finished, but are much lighter…
