A fully equipped puppet building workshop
Puppet Garage is the creative space where puppets come together. The workshop is stocked with a wide array of foams, fleece, feathers, flock and the specialized tools needed to assemble them. There is no puppet building supply store. The materials used by by Puppet Garage have been sourced over the years from other industries such as shoe repair, home improvement stores, and fabric and craft shops.
The Garage is occupied by Russ Walko, an expert in puppet fabrication and manipulation. Russ has been working and performing professionaly for the last decade. Besides creating puppets at Puppet Garage, he is often hired to build puppets for several other shops around town. He has learned several of his techniques from working with the Jim Henson Company and the Muppets.
