Tanglewood’s master puppeteers will discuss some of the construction and stringing techniques used when building marionettes, and then demonstrate the basics of marionette manipulation. Participants will be provided with professional-quality marionettes for the duration of the workshop. These marionettes will be short-strung to allow the participants to work them at floor-level. Students will begin with simple manipulation, such as turning the puppet's head or raising its hand, and then progress to compound movements, such as sitting or walking. Emphasis will be placed on encouraging participants to carefully observe real-world movement. The workshop will culminate with applying the movement techniques learned to express emotions.

Even when you try to cook from scratch, many recipes call for processed ingredients: canned cream of chicken soup, onion soup mix, jarred mayonnaise, or boxed stuffing mix. You know you want to eat real food, but what about all your favorite recipes?

I'll make a basic cream sauce and show you how to adapt it to become many different flavors, then talk a little philosophy on how to think about reverse engineering your favorite recipes so you can really use whole foods and feel great about it.
