This is a two-week, come-and-go-as-you-please workshop hosted by artist Dennis McNett. McNett has held these workshops across the country in which participants create wearable sculptures in the form of full head coverings. There is no fee and all supplies will be provided. These workshops culminate in a procession with McNett's 12-foot puppets and costumes, happening this year on Hot Dog Day.
