Puppet helpers needed

Scott Foxx is looking for students interested in learning the art of puppetry and contributing to a few projects for the Bulloch County Historical Society, GSU Museum, and Averitt Center for the Arts. The projects vary but helpful skills include sewing, sculpture (all sorts), painting and the ability to follow directions. It is not necessary to manipulate and perform but the chance exists to do so (and possibly get paid for it).

Foxx needs help building masks, making costume pieces, muppet style hand and rod puppets, a 9-foot tall death puppet operated on a backpack, a stage set for the Christmas Carol, a small scale walking stage, a Mossasaur Chinese style parade dragon (this one is priority because FOOTBALL), and sundry prop pieces and backdrops and so forth. Time is limited and I work mostly on weekends and Friday, but skilled and trustworthy people may have access to the workshop to make progress outside of this time if I think you have the skills.

Email directly to Scott Foxx at, or drop by his office during office hours (His office is on the same hall as the 2D design classroom). Although he cannot assure pay, he can assure a lot of learning and will let you take away patterns for your own uses and will consult with you on your own work, which he can let you use his space and tools for in the future should you need it. The workshop is located in the Averitt Center for the Arts at 33 East Main Street, next to the old courthouse in downtown Statesboro. Experience in puppetry is preferred but not necessary.
