Br'er Rabbit Puppet Project
The concept behind the Br'er Rabbit puppet project was to create an educational puppet show aimed at young students in South Carolina and Georgia, emphasizing their origin in the Gullah community, a critically important aspect of Lowcountry and African American culture. With a focus on the Gullah culture and language, the show would revolve around several popular Br'er Rabbit stories. The puppets would be constructed out of found materials local to the costal Carolina plains and with traditional techniques like sweetgrass weaving and rag quilting. The Br'er Rabbit mockup was constructed to research scale, rough mechanics, texture treatments, and materials.
