Legs

Read a blog post about making my giant puppet for last year's Beltane.

 

I forget whose legs these are, but this gives you an idea of the basic construction technique we were using for the limbs of our puppets - a bone of bamboo, at least two rings of willow and then cross-pieces and gaffer tape to hold it in place. More withies (thin sticks of willow) strengthen the final limb-section.

 

Here's Mashi when she's finished, and here she is almost finished.
