A TWO-DAY WORKSHOP: EXPLORING THE HEALING GRACE OF SPIRIT DOLLS
Fee (Including some materials) $150
LIMIT SIX STUDENTS
This workshop was inspired by the recent class I taught at the Austin School of Fiber Arts. If you would like to see photos from that class, please go to my Blog.
A Spirit Doll is a lovingly-crafted three-dimensional figure that acts as a vessel for spiritual connections – blessings, aspirations, protection, good fortune for yourself or someone else. The act of creating a Spirit Doll is meditative and thoughtful. There are no special skills required other than your own intention and your trust in the creative process.
On the first day of the two-day workshop, we will explore the simplest form of a spirit doll, a figure crafted from twigs and twine adorned with scraps of fabric and fiber.
On the 2nd day, you’ll work with a paper and plaster armature to create a small Spirit Doll sculpture which will be wrapped and adorned with fiber, fabric ribbon, beads, bone – any materials that reflects your aesthetic and spiritual intention. These figures can be free-standing, or wall hung. These art dolls will become a beloved part of your body of work in fiber and mixed media.
About the Studio:
My personal studio space is a small apartment near my home which has two workrooms, a kitchen and a gathering room. I limit attendance to six students so we can have a relaxed learning experience together in a cozy setting.
