This workshop will take place at the Puppeteers of American National Puppetry Festival ~ and teach the construction of stage-effective masks for Scarf Marionette and small-scale puppets in the style of Roser’s Paper-Sculpture Technique. This technique allows the artist to discover an expressive sculptural face from an otherwise flat piece of paper.

Sarah mentored with Master Puppeteer Albrecht Roser absorbing his theories on zen and the art of puppetry from 2002-2009. She has performed with her roser-style marionettes as part of Meisterklasse; at the 2018 Mariottissimo Festival at the PUK Museum in Bad Kreuznach, Germany; and in 2017 at the final celebration in Roser’s Buoch Studio.

Frechette and R. Walsh will show students how a Scarf Marionette is constructed and played according to the method of A. Roser.
