Step 2: Puppet Building: Agoro Style -- Sewing

The last step in the 'Pre-Build' phase is sewing together the fabric that you've previously cut out.

This video demonstrates the technique and approach I use for hand sewing the puppets. And yes, I hand sew everything.

Step 3: Puppet Building: Agoro Style -- Arms

Now the character will start to emerge from the parts you've been preparing.

This video goes into detail on how to build arms with posable fingers, a natural bend at the elbow and the ability to swivel 360 degrees at the shoulder -- using a specialized joint of my own design.

Step 5: Puppet Building: Agoro Style -- the Head

And so we saved the best till last. The head is the area of the character that will take up alot of time and thought, as you decide work on the point of focus for the puppet - the face.

This video demonstrates the techniques used to build the foam skull for the puppet, then skinning the skull and finally we look at the face.

Step 6: Puppet Building: Agoro Style -- Putting It All Together

After all the effort and creative flourishes you'll have dismembered puppet parts. All that's left to do is put it all together.

If you've followed the tutorial we'd love to see what you've made.
