Marionettes, rod puppets, table tops and hand puppets.

Katie Griffiths has been making puppets for WishWorks since 1999; hand crafting each one individually- sewing costumes; carving heads and limbs or using papier-mache. She is highly skilled and every puppet she makes has great character and life.
