Puppet making

Finished puppet a very satisfying feeling. A good marionette puppet starting point.
Tools needed: scissors, paper glue, awe for poking holes, tape, and stapler
It is takes a little time to get the wool/string at the right length – put on a door handle or hook for ease. The stapled neck is threaded with wool/string through the head. Puncture paper to insert paper clips. Once everything is assembled decorated how you choose.

Quote: Curator Alisha Abate:
Out of the white cubed gallery space and into the shopping strip of the Northern suburbs. Eight artists will create site-specifically artwork in Coburg North. Stroll along the strips of Lorensen Ave and Merlyn Street, peering into shop windows to see where boundaries are blurred between public and private space, where the artists reference their own personal and museological histories. The shop front window is an inaccessible space, boarded off to the public, but alludes us to look deeper into, inviting us further inside.
