Make a piece of Kansas City history AND a puppet.
The PAI offers vinyl puppet painting workshops using remnant stock from the Hazelle Puppet Co. which closed in the early 1980’s. After selecting a vinyl puppet head, you will paint the head with special vinyl adhering paint, select a costume and have a lesson on performing with your puppet on our stage. Currently, there are approximately 24 Hazelle designed styles to choose from, including both hand and sleeve styles.
- Reservations preferred and required for groups of 4 or more.
- Minimum age 5 years (short skinny fingers can’t hold up the puppet heads or work the hands)
- $7.50 per puppet.
- Workshops take 45-90 minutes (depending on the number of painters and/or PAI staff) and age of the painters (teens take longer).
- No workshops are started after 2:30 pm.
