Beautiful Puppetry

I was luck enough about a week ago, to meet the very talented Leon Hendroff. Leon is a graphic artist, who is also into making marionette puppets. Some felt caught my eye at a local market and when I started to look at the stall, these amazing little guys where staring at me and wanting to come home with me. Now who am I to go against their wishes.

Leon is involved in the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre here in Fremantle. It's one thing to see his beautiful puppets, but to see him manipulate and move them is something different again. I am planning to have Leon come and run a workshop for us at Catalyst in August.
