Koi Puppet-Making Workshop 2:30PM

Join us for a 20-minute Koi Puppet-Making Workshop. Participation fee is $5 per child.

The story of The Carp Who Would Not Quit is based the legend of the carp (koi) who swam up the golden waterfall and was transformed into a celestial dragon as a reward. The story reminds us to always do our best and always encourage one another. To help us keep remembering that important lesson, COCA teaching artists will work with students, ages 3–9, on making and decorating a koi puppet to keep.


About The Carp Who Would Not Quit

The Carp Who Would Not Quit brings to life traditional fable tellings from Japan and Okinawa to teach important lessons of persistence, respect, and kindness. Introducing live original music, language, and performance traditions from these cultures, this interactive performance is specifically developed for our youngest audiences.
