Little Sunblossom Seasons Table Puppet

Creating Seasonal Handwork with Christine Culbert

Two Live Zoom Sessions July 13 & 14, 2024 1-3pm Central

Little Sunblossom would love to come to your summer seasons table bringing her warmth, light and colorful blooms. She is a sturdy table puppet made from natural wool felt and stands about six inches high. In two 2-hour zoom sessions we will each learn to make a Little Sunblossom puppet. She can live on your seasons table or might even inspire a summer story or puppet play! This workshop is intended for beginners as well as for more experienced stitchers.

**Earn 4 CE hours for participating in the LIVE workshop. Working with the recording will not count towards a certificate. Registrants of the class will receive a link to complete a feedback assessment as part of CE credit.

Details of the Workshop Content

In this workshop we will work with beautiful natural materials, our imaginations and our warm hearts and hands to create Little Sunblossom. The basic stitches we will use are the running stitch, back stitch, and the blanket stitch. In the first session we will sew together the puppet body and head. In the second class, we will create Little Sunblossom’s flower cape and sew on her hair and blossom cap. As in the mood of a traditional sewing circle we will sew together, get to know one another and even learn a song that Little Sunblossom likes to sing. We will consider the sacred work of the hands in creating things of beauty for young children.

For the first session please cut out your patterns ahead of time. Thank you!
