A marionette is a puppet that is maneuvered by strings, typically these strings are attached to two pieces of wood that are nailed together to form a cross. The puppeteer moves the to make the marionette move. Some marionettes are made so they can even move their hands or make small hand motions, but these are complicated to make and difficult to maneuver.

How to work a Marionette.

Step 1: Practice handling the marionette puppet ( they are very life like in their reactions but manipulating them takes practice and time)

Step 2: Stand above the marionette in a comfortable position

Step 3: Align the marionette so that the strings are not tangled together

Step 4: Begin with basic movements: sitting, walking, lifting one leg and then the other and lifting one arm and then the other

Step 5: Continue practicing until you feel more comfortable combining the different movements together
