Masterclass woodcarving workshop, 27th July to 2nd August 2015 in beautiful Czech countryside near Prague. Over the period of seven days, you will complete a table top puppet, from your very own design through to its final form. Maximum 12 participants guarantees a personal approach from both of our tutors — internationally recognised puppet designer Mischa Bartonova and professional carver Jiri Helcel. They will provide the necessary guidance throughout, help you with your concept using theory of archetypes, provide tips on hand-carving and most importantly ensure you have a great time along the way!
