During a short walk you will find the gifts and beauties of our majestic forest. We will gently guide you and explain how to work with pinecones, branches, mosses, beans and seeds. You will also discover new exotic materials, you may have never seen before.
You will learn to work with drill, wire, saw and much more – if you are little scared there will be a pair of strong hands to help you!

After collecting the materials in forest we will move to the MUSE LAB. Lector Erica will introduce all the materials and explain the techniques of marionette making. We welcome children with their parents as well as curious adults.

All you need to bring is a smile and comfortable clothes. We will provide everything including refreshments. Everyone will walk home with a finished marionette.
