Dollmaker Charlie Patricolo encourages her students to produce work that challenges their ideas about their own abilities as “makers” and inspires them to push the limits of what they believe to be possible in their work. With her guidance, students learn and apply techniques for designing original, handmade dolls that reflect their own unique interests and experiences.
- Flying Fairy Dollmaking
November 9, 2018 - November 11, 2018
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Price: $249 plus a $20 Kit Fee paid to the instructor at the beginning of the workshop – includes lunches, drinks & snacks daily
Class size: Minimum 4; Maximum 12. No experience necessary. Minimum age to participate: 16.
Over the course of three (3) days, you’ll stitch and stuff a fantastic Flying Fairy (about 15” long)! With a needle sculpted face, beautiful clothing, wired wings made of silk organza and painted rice paper you will create a one of a kind figure. She floats on air (ok, hangs by a wire but you get the picture)!
No previous doll making experience is needed to be successful in this class, but a sewing machine in good working order and familiarity with it is required. If you are traveling with a friend, the two of you can share a machine as there are many components of this class in addition to machine sewing.
Daily lunches, drinks & snacks are included as well as all materials. Show up with your sewing machine and basic sewing kit and create your own Flying Fairy!
Students need to bring:
- a sewing machine** in good working order (if you don’t use yours frequently, give it a run a few weeks before leaving for the workshop)
- a basic sewing kit (fabric scissors, paper scissors, and strong straight pins).
The Kit will include ($20 fee paid to the instructor at the start of your workshop): fabric for your doll, yarns for hair, silk and paper for clothing/wings, stuffing, paints, pens and pencils, and stuffing tools for use.
**If you do not have a sewing machine and would like to take this workshop, contact Kristin for options.
