In June 2018 Erin attended this wonderful three day conference with dear friend and fellow UofA graduate Haley Reap. This event created by WP Puppet Theatre was at the University of Calgary campus and Erin was able to take in a wide variety of talks, workshops and puppet related experiences. It was a true joy to share this experience with Haley!
A significant highlight for Erin was the Puppet Lantern Build Workshop lead by Nan Balkwill (co-director of Iinisikimm: A Homecoming for the Buffalo of Banff National Park). This experience had a significant impact on Erin's co-design for the elephant puppet featured in Matara (WWPT, 2019).
