Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tucked away in a plain five-story building in Manhattan is a magical place--The Muppet Workshop, where inspired craftspeople combine a diverse array of skills to bring the Muppet world to life. Now The Workshop, along with Stephanie St. Pierre--who grew up making crafts with her friends the Hensons--presents The Muppets Big Book of Crafts, a collection of 100 great projects plus trade secrets.

Filled with full-color photographs and how-to line illustrations, The Muppets Big Book of Crafts is divided into chapters by technique and teaches the basics of drawing, sculpting, sewing, painting, dyeing, woodworking, quilting, puppetry, beading, and more. The results are amazing. A creepy-crawly spider piata filled with baby candy spiders. Elaborate tin can lanterns. A mosaic made of eggshells. Not to mention Groovy Glasses, Suncatcher Bugs, and Awesome Umbrae Scarf, a Wiggly Worm, and Marvelous Maracas. Throughout, tips, advice, and the running commentary of Muppet characters keep the book lively and entertaining.

Synopsis:

Suncatcher Bugs and Popsicle Hands, Groovy Glasses, and more!

Drawing on the creativity and trade secrets of The Muppet Workshop, here is a wide-ranging collection of 100 inspired crafts. Turn brown paper bags and wooden dowels into a kid-size teepee, or rescue tin cans from the recycling bin and make them into your very own robot. There are costumes to sew, masks to cut out and paint, glamorous jewelry to show off. The crafts are organized by technique--each chapter focuses on a different skill, such as drawing, sculpting, quilting, beading--and projects are illustrated with full-color photographs and how-to line drawings. Kermit ads insider tips throughout, and Miss Piggy rates every project's level of difficulty. Complete one or complete them all--you're on your way to becoming an honorary Muppet Craftsperson.
