The Puppet Studio

Lex Rudd is an award winning toy designer who previously worked for Folkmanis puppets, has worked as an artist/fabricator for the Jim Henson Creature Shop and Disney and has run her own creature shop in Sonoma County for almost 10 years.

The studio will continue to function making creatures and puppets but will move from it’s current location to downtown Forestville. There’s a name change too – Primal Visions will become Dreams and Visions for the new location. You can check out her old site and gallery at Primal Visions.  Please check out the gallery below for examples of Lex’s work.



Simple to advanced puppet making, handy craft projects, sewing and textile techniques, and more coming soon! You will come out of the class with a finished project or one to complete at home with your newly learned techniques.
