Keep citizen journalism alive!



Help build the puppets for the 43rd MayDay Parade!

During the month of April, In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre is transformed into a giant studio where staff artists and volunteers create the MayDay Parade.

From Saturday, April 8 – Thursday, May 4, 2017, MayDay Build Workshops are held at1500 E Lake St, Mpls, MN 55407:

Every Tuesday from 7-9pm

Every Thursday from 7-9pm

Every Saturday from 9-11am and 1-3pm

Workshops are free and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Workshops are funded by free will donations.

Bring recycled items to the build if you can! We especially love paper bags and newspaper donations.

How it Works

An artist will introduce you to the parade theme by showing you the giant storyboard (a visual script).

You select a section of the parade to work on, find the artist in charge of that section, and set to work!

Artists will guide you.

You can either make your own creation which you can keep after the parade, or help with the larger parade floats.

Typically, you’ll need 3 or 4 sessions to complete a project, but you can come to as many or as few as your schedule allows.

Other Details

Workshops are free, although donations are graciously accepted, always welcome, and much needed.

Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Wear “painting” clothes.

No reservations required. Just Come!

All welcome!
