Making a Marionette

Free with reserved ticket
Learning Center

Unlike the other puppets in Geppetto’s workshop, Pinocchio is a living puppet who is able to dance and move without strings. However, traditional marionette puppets are held up by strings which allow the puppeteer to manipulate their joints in complex movements. Join us in this workshop as we discuss more about the film, celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, and create your own lively marionette.
