Make A Movie Box!

Award-winning puppeteer Katy Williams shows older kids how to build a crankie, a shadow puppet stage with moving backgrounds that tell a story. We’ll start with a demo of a professional crankie, then craft our own, inspired by rock formations at Garden of the Gods. Every student will take home a fully-functional story box, complete with shadow puppets.
