This course will teach you the basics of designing an expressive head for the stage. In the second stage, you carve either your own or another given design out of linden wood using a template, band saw and carving tools. As no experience of carving tools is necessary for the course, students can carve out the puppet head each according to their own skill and effort. The focus is on getting to know what it's all about. The course also covers subjects such as materials, cutting techniques and sharpening sculpting tools.
