Stop Motion Beginners (Puppet Making) – T2a Course

This course is setup to take you through various building methods in the production of stop motion puppet making. The total length of the course should be up to 6 months in time since there are lots of different techniques and methods used in the production of building puppets for stop motion animation. The best strategy for focusing on the lessons is to take your time, don’t stress, and learn to be patient with yourself and the process. Puppet making takes a lot of time. Sometimes it can be frustrating, but when you finish it is super rewarding and satisfying. So take your time and enjoy! Also, you are not required to build every puppet design and exercise. All students are only required to build from their own imagination a puppet design to complete the course. So sit back, relax, and think about what you want to build…
