**This event will take place as a Virtual Premiere screening with Marte Ekhougen.**

In Scandinavian folklore, the forests are full of trolls and little gnomes, and in Norwegian puppeteer and sculptor Marte Ekhougen a.k.a. Doctor Superhelga’s home in Norway, they abound in puppet and marionette form! In this online workshop for families and adults, we’ll learn how to make whimsical expressionistic troll “stuffies” using found and recycled materials. Follow along with Marte and her daughter as you watch the presentation to make your own troll baby at home!

This event will take place as a virtual premiere at 11 AM ET on September 18 via YouTube and Facebook. The event will remain available to watch on this page through September 25.
