Punchinello with Kathryn Walmsley, NIADA Artist

Punch

Punchinello is a favorite character seen in many illustrations throughout history. He is often shown as a puppet but our version will be a seated doll. I’ve designed a new cloth body pattern for my version of Punch. He’ll be seated on a decorated stool

In class we’ll be working in Creative Paperclay ® to sculpt his head, big nose and all, hat and hands. Our sculptures will be assembled with the cloth body with wire armature.   We will move on to painting, embellishing and dressing our characters with some pattern drafting for costumes. A complete set of cloth body and clothing patterns are included. 

I hope you’ll join us and plan to make Punchinello your own.
