Crankie Box Storytelling

Thu, Feb 22, 2024

Join puppeteer and fiber artist J Hann for a workshop exploring the storytelling art of crankie boxes. Derived from the ancient uses of scrolls to illustrate and share epic tales, crankie boxes are constructed from cardboard boxes, dowels, and paper scrolls. Participants will build their own crankie box and illustrate a story for their crankie scroll. For ages 16 and up. Space is limited.
