    Anyone out west been to or know about this puppetry weekend? It seems quite promising (and extremely affordable.)

    $85 bucks is a little pricey for me, personally. Still, I will pass the word on to my fellow entertainers. Thanks for the heads up!

    Pricey? Wow. While I understand personal circumstances, objectively speaking, it's a really great price for two days of workshops. A lot of puppetry festivals and workshops cost sometimes several hundred dollars. This seems a steal!

    Well, pricey in the sense that I don't use puppetry much in my routine and $100 (now) seems like a lot of money for something I trot out once or twice a year.

    I will say that I did chat this up at the Big Foot Clown Alley in Tacoma and hopefully some of the more puppetry-focused clowns will attend!

    Sometimes, just getting together with other types of entertainers and seeing them perform can give inspiration to your own performances. The expensive part, is for those of us from the wrong Washington that would have to fly across the country, find a hotel, and stuff like that. I guess there could also be the lost gigs that come from not working one weekend.

    Kewl. Report back here for us, please, and let us know what they thought of the event and workshops.

    I'd love to attend, myself, but as Toony noted...

    I do like to try things to extend myself and expand my repertoire, gaining new ideas, and getting the creative juices flowing. I think that the greater base of understanding I have of various arts the more opportunity I have to pull upon in my own work, when needed.
