How Wood Comes To Life - Marionette Carving Workshop Summer 2010

Vlad The Pale One, always craving for something fresh...


There are places in the world, where you know immediately that you are in a good one, one, where good people doing good things.
One of these places is Mirek Trejtnars workshop in Prague, where wonderful classes in marionette carving, manipulating, animated film, etc. take place once or twice every year.
And so did I. Doing something good by taking part in Mireks summer carving workshop in Prague and with me 11 other fellow carvers from 9 different countries all over the continents.
This was the time of my life. Nothing more and nothing less.
And Vlad The Pale One is the living proofe, that it wasn't just a dream...


He immediately became famous (ok, not only he) by his legendary interpretation of the bloody, cruel, creepy, scary story of Snowwhite and the 7 Dwarfs.


The Czech Version of Snowwhite - for adults only ;-))

And here they are, the wonderful fellow creatures of Vlads:

Dear Christina,
thank you so much!
Yes, I'm kind of proud, but most of all very grateful, that I had the possibility do do that.
And you know, should you ever decide to visit Prague, just let me know :-))
Hugs, Brigitte
