Learn How to Puppeteer!

One of the most frequently asked questions at The Jim Henson Company is, "How do I become a Puppeteer?" 

Hard work and amazing hand-eye coordination are two important skills you need to be a puppeteer. A lot of puppeteers also relay on their vast imaginations to bring the character to life! 
What other skills do you need to be a puppeteer? We created a couple short videos on basic puppetry that can help you learn the techniques and skills. 

There are many ways to make your own puppet and learn how to puppeteer. Below are a couple of books to get you started on your puppeteering journey!
