Hands-On: Letterpress Puppets
Etsy Labs (55 Washington St., Suite 712, Brooklyn)

Free, registration required
The talented Etsy seller, animator and author, Norma Toraya, aka crankbunny, will join us on Tuesday, October 23rd in the Brooklyn Etsy Labs and introduce us to the magical world of articulated paper puppets. We will begin each session cranking out copies of Norma’s custom doll on the Vandercook letterpress. Never printed before? No problem! We will guide you through the printing process.
After printing, customize your doll template with ink and watercolors using inspiration from Norma’s tattoo dolls and Day of the Dead illustrations. Once your doll is printed, painted and cut, Norma will show you how to bring these pieces to life.
We hope to see you at the Brooklyn Etsy Labs to participate in this multimedia project!
