Katherine Fahey, award winning puppeteer, is one of the pioneers reviving the art form of crankies, a form of visual storytelling involving a scroll of artwork in a box. Her pieces are based on stories and songs as far reaching as legends of northernmost Quebec and the swamps of Louisiana to her hometown streets of Baltimore. She has been teaching crankie making and performing nationwide since 2010. Accompanying her will be woodworker, puppeteer, and foley artist Daniel Van Allen.
