Mid-Autumn Moon Shadow Play


Celebrate the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival with shadow puppet making! The harvest season full moon is said to be the biggest and brightest in the year. Join FTH’s teaching artist Spica Wobbe in the world of shadow play. Participants will learn how to design and construct a simple shadow puppet and stage, and tell their family version of a moon story. For ages 6 & up. What can be better than using the ancient Chinese Art form-- shadow puppetry, to celebrate the Moon Festival? With its bold shapes, vivid colors, and dramatic movement, it is a perfect tool for storytelling. During the workshop, participants will design and make a shadow stage of their own. They will then learn how to use simple paper cut out, joints and control rods to create their shadow puppets. As a team, they will bring their puppets to life on their shadow stage with movement, dialogue and music to tell a story about the moon.
