I will use the Windgate Fellowship to advance my work in puppet making for stop-motion animation. I plan to participate in a workshop at MASS MoCa focusing on traditional carving techniques for wooden puppets as well as travel to Prague to study contemporary Czech puppet animation. During these workshops, I will learn how to weld an armature, latex mold making, and wood carving techniques. After the workshop, I will rent out studio space, buy materials, and collaborate with other artists to handcraft my puppets and sets and bring them to life through film.
The Center for Craft is expanding, adding an additional 7,000 ft² of program space within our historic 1912 building in downtown Asheville! During this time our building will be closed — reopening Fall 2019. Our Grants and Fellowships programs will continue to operate on a normal schedule.Close X
