About the Fellers

For thirty years Ron and Marsha Feller have been making masks, writing songs and stories and making innovative gift cards and books with children, teachers and parents.

Their popular workshops have kept them in demand throughout the United States doing school assemblies, family concerts, young writers’ conferences, artists’ residencies, educational seminars and college courses.

They are the authors of two books: Paper Masks and Puppets for Stories, Songs and Plays and Fanciful Faces & Handbound Books: Fairy Tales. They have also created the Fanciful Faces Mask Making Template Sets that you see on this site.

The Feller’s Arts Factory workshops with children and adults focus on writing stories, songs and plays. Participants learn paper sculpting for mask and puppet construction, gift card design, illustrating, and simple bookbinding techniques to accompany the writing activities. The workshops can be from one and a half hours to several days in length.
