Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Wroclaw Puppet Theater

Robert, I would definitely like to take a class....but before I could even 
tell you what I may be interested in would need to know what they are 
experts in...what kinds of things they could offer????

I think I do remember your pictures and if memory serves (and it probably 
doesn't) seem to remember their carving technique with Styrofoam and a knife 
or do I have that wrong?????

I think this is GREAT!!!!!
What a wonderful thing for Mum to do....

Please give me some guidance on what could be offered and I will give back 
whatever information I can.
