Chasing the marionette dream

Some time ago I posted a picture of a puppet head I was carving. I've now added a bit of hair, and he is starting to get some character.
I have been inspired to redouble my efforts, as I have been accepted onto a course in long string marionette manipulation at the Little Angel Puppet Theatre in London.
I cant tell you how excited and scared I am about 9 days in London, but I couldn't miss the opportunity.
This will all help in forwarding my current project of building a mobile puppet theatre on a farm cart that's

over 100 years old. Pictures to follow soon.
This is a major new chapter in my life, and when it all comes together my aim is to leave children slack-jawed with wonder, and remind their parents what it felt like to dream
