I'm new, but enjoying puppet making a lot! I've written a musical about Grace Darling, the hero of the Farn Islands (she carried out a sea rescue in 1838 ) during lock down and I intend to perform it with a puppet as Grace. I've designed a table that she sits on with a scenery behind the puppet, and started the puppet and ordered some fir fabric for skin. I'm really enjoying the making at the moment - any advice on how to progress? if anyone's interested in the music, it's here https://greycatz.bandcamp.com/releases I plan to sit on one side of the table with my wife on the other, who plays mandolin while I play the guitar. Long term plan is to perform in schools, with a first performance at Christmas for a panto sort of thing.

Welcome Richard to Puppets and Stuff. Sounds like it will be a great school show. 

Are you using fur or fleece for the skin?  For people puppets fleece is better. You can purchase special antron fleece or just go with a fleece you find in sewing stores. Either work the actual antron fleece just holds up better and is a little nicer.
