Puppets made from a tree, just the way Geppetto did. All of our puppets start with a walk in the woods where we find timeless wooden companions hiding inside crooked branches. The puppets are then hand carved using a small axe and a whittling knife, keeping the enchanted spirit of the tree and forest forever locked inside. This is the essence of slöjd, where a simple pocketful of skills and tools can be used to literally craft your way through life. Learn to make your own in one of our one-day or multi-day workshops.
the puppets of tanglewood tuft
Perched atop the cloud piercing jungle of dark and adventurous days known as The Strangled Eminence, sits Tanglewood Tuft, a grand forest of birdsong, hope and mischief surrounded by an ocean of rolling clouds. Warrior mice, wizened hares and a tribe of Pinocchio folk are among its residents, as well as leaf elves and a curious population of aliens who crashed their flying saucer into the Tuft many moons ago. From time-to-time an adventurous soul from Tanglewood Tuft heads to the The Strangled Eminence to swing and ramble through its dangerous and enticing jungle of twisted trunks and shifting shadows. These are the brave beasts who bring with them stories of life in this wilderness above the clouds. The stories of the puppets of Tanglewood Tuft.
