Furry Puppet Studio is exactly what it sounds like: a magical laboratory where puppets are born! At least that’s what it seems like from their website, which is replete with images of stupdendous, diverse puppets and nifty glimpses at the process that brings these creatures to life. In their “Workshop” section, we’re treated to photos and descriptions of various stages in the puppet-making process. The Furry Puppet blog takes it a step further with some tantalizingly brief looks at works in progress, including video screen tests and disembodied robotic eyes in action.
Is puppeteering the new knitting? Will D.I.Y. puppet shows follow in the footsteps of indie craft fairs? Let’s hope! We could use some more puppets in the world today.
