In partnership with Center for Puppetry Arts, the Hyatt International South on Saturday Sept. 2 at 11:30AM, welcomed attendees of all ages who came to make and take their own one-of-a-kind dragon. At the first station, pre-cut dragons were assembled by the attendees. Once completed, the dragon’s wings would “fly” to the next station where the attendees could make their dragon unique.
There, the creator could add color, glue, and plan the design of their dragon. No two were alike. You could decorate as much or as little as you wanted. There was no “wrong” way to do this. Watching the participants was enchanting as their inner child was living a small dream of owning a Dragon Con dragon.
Once finished, the newly-created dragon could take flight, wings flapping with joy. Their creator had given birth to their own Dragon Con dragon.
This free workshop was headed up by Aretta Baumgartner, Stacey Gordon, and Mo Vermenton, along with the volunteers who helped everyone make their dragon dreams come true. It’s always the year of the dragon at Dragon Con.
