Puppet Workshops!

Starting these week, Jamie Shannon & Branda Dale will be leading puppet and lantern making workshops in Charlottetown and New Glasgow!

Jamie is leading the creation of puppets for the School of Giant Luminous Jellyfish. These will be individually operated, luminous jellyfish puppets that will join the Pageant procession. Jellyfish making will take place at the New Glasgow Christian Church. Branda is leading Ghostly Fish lantern making, with one upcoming session in Charlottetown at The Dominion Building (97 Queen Street, use side entrance at Richmond street) and all other sessions in New Glasgow at the Church. 

These workshops are open to the public – so drop in when you can and help us make some extraordinary jellyfish and lanterns. If you want to participate in the Pageant as a Jellyfish or lantern operator, all the better – come to a workshop and personalize your puppet!
