News and Red Yarn Photos!

It's been a while! Good news on the Red Yarn front: I was invited to join the roster of teaching artists at Young Audiences! That means I'll be one of the local artists that schools can invite to lead residencies. For now, I'm offering my "Folk Song Puppet Show" residency through YA. I'll teach students a folk song, they'll build puppets out of its characters, then we'll put on a musical puppet show. I'm just getting my promotional materials up on their website, so no work in schools yet, but hopefully by next school year I'll have some gigs. Wish me luck!

This weekend my friend Aaron Hewitt came over for a Red Yarn photo shoot. Jessie graciously held up puppets behind me for more than an hour. Get a load of these pics!
