Mr Watanabe and Ulrike Quade Company in Amsterdam
Emma had the rare opportunity to attend an intensive workshop in the construction of traditional Japanese Bunraku puppets. The two-week masterclass took place in Amsterdam under the guidance of master puppet-maker Watanabe Kazunori, and was organised by Ulrike Quade Company.
With the aid of his translators, Mr Watanabe guided the group through the process of making several complete Bunraku puppets. Images of Emma's puppet in progress are below.
