A doll story: Constructing your art doll from scratch live workshop in Santa Ana, CA

I'm going to California! That's right, last year I was there teaching a painting workshop in the fabulous Studio Crescendoh and this year I'm teaching how to make dolls!!! Last year it was only one day and we wanted more time to play so this year we're offering a 2 day workshop.  I'm so excited about it! 

 Have you ever wondered how I go from this:      


to this? 

Wonder no more! In this workshop I'm going to teach you EVERYTHING.  


From the concept of the doll, how to make your own patterns, sewing, stuffing, painting, drawing the face, aging and embellishing.


 All will be covered and you will take home your own beautiful creation! And that's not all, I'm including a kit with the basics to make your doll and with my own pattern for you to play with.


Don't have a sewing machine? No problem! We'll have some available for the ones who can't bring their own and I'll be happy to share mine too.

Here's the info about the workshop:

Construcing Your Art Doll from Scratch with Danita

2-Day Workshop, August 10-11, 2013
in Studio CRESCENDOh

Doll Making has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy starting with an idea, working with my hands and making choices that will define who I am creating in the process.
The finished piece can be a girl, an animal, happy, sad, and wearing anything I want. The power of creating something out of nothing brings joy to my heart like nothing else. It's a very different feeling from just painting, because my idea gets to be more than just an image and becomes a tangible, touchable thing. I love it, and I want to share with you that feeling.
Join me in a 2-day workshop as I guide you through the process I use for creating a soft doll, from concept to the finished piece. We will learn together how I transform an idea using a basic pattern to make the initial shape. I'll show you how I use an alchemy of mixed media techniques to sew, paint, dress up and embellish your creation, and by the end of the workshop you will get to take home a beautiful one-of-a-kind doll.

I chose Alice In Wonderland because it's a favorite of mine, but you can do anything you want.

 
What do you think? Are you ready to join me?
I promise you will learn a lot, have fun and you'll get to take home your own custom art doll!

Can't wait to see you there!!!
