Thanks to a grant received from the Acadiana Center for the Arts, the St. Martin Parish Library was able to arrange for a visit from Matt Sandbank’s Shadow Factory.

Here are two pictures from the shadow puppet workshop held at the Breaux Bridge Branch Library yesterday as part of our Summer Reading Program. All participants had a great time making puppets and practicing on the shadow screen.

For those interested in practicing this art form at home, cutouts can be found and printed from the web. Click here to connect to one site with tons of cutouts for shadow puppetry performances.
