Good Ideas Come to Light

Once a month, The Cultch will open its doors to the community with a free event – provided for the community, from the community. Each month, anyone from the Vancouver community can teach others something new – whether it be a cooking class, dancing, a yoga class, a party! – providing a space to learn, create and come together!
Dark Day #6: Socks & Puppets = SOCK PUPPETS!
There is an African proverb that says ‘You learn more about someone in an hour of play than in a year of conversation’, and that is why it is a fabulous idea for you to spend an evening making a sock puppet with a group of strangers!
Mike Funergy is an Expressive Arts Therapist who enjoys using creativity to bring people together, and has discovered that sock puppets are a fun and simple tool and anyone can join in on. In this workshop you’ll get some instruction, guidance, and basic tips for how to make your sock puppet look great, though the fun part will be open for you to create. You’ll be amazed at how wonderful of a fuzzy friend you can create in a short amount of time!
Once the puppets are complete, then the exciting part begins… creating a character! We’ll do some simple activities that will help you to name them, find out where they are from, what their hobbies are, and all the fabulous things that make your puppet unique!
No experience required, just bring a sense of play!
