    As most of you guys know, The Muppet worksop at 117, East 69th Street in New York City was sold. I heard that there is still a workshop in that area but i am not sure as to what the address of it is. Where is it at this time.:confused:

    I understand that they have the entire 9th floor of the building. The entire floor is corporate offices and workshop Kev.

    I'm taking a trip to New York next month. I wonder if I'll get a chance to see that Muppet Workshop. Or at least see the outside building.

    They just re-opened at another location in Manhattan a few months ago. So yes, they do have a New York office.

    Thanks Vic. Like all of you, I would really like to see the inside of the worksop. My reason is that like a lot of you, I hope to have a carreer as a puppeteer working for Henson. The only problem is that I have never built any puppets like the Muppets. I hope someone has patterns that they can give me, especailly the one from Women's Day magazine.

    There are links in the puppetry section to get free puppet patterns.

    As far as tours go, they're pretty private. They have a lot of work to do so I doubt that they'd take the public on a tour. I guess it's worth a shot to call though. You wouldn't know they were there from the outside of the building.

    hi, Sometimes people ask where to send "fan letters" or ask for "tours".

    Someone posted: The Jim Henson Company
    627 Broadway, 9th Floor
    New York, NY 10012

    as contact info. Where did you get the info?

    ZNS, it's probably very unlikely they will give you puppet patterns, but if you're looking for the Women's Day pattern it can be downloaded from http://www.puppetminister.com/links/muppets-blatch.pdf

    As Foz mentioned, there are links to all kinds of puppet building resources available if you explore the Puppetry section of the forum. I've written a Guide to Puppet Building Resources that you might find helpful too.

    Thanks alot Buck-Beaver, this really helps. As for what I said, I didn't mean that the people at Henson would actually give me patterns :smirk: , but that I could get ideas on how to get started. But this helps anyway. ;)
