"The ART Doll Workshop"

*All work shown is that of the instructor

As a guest instructor, I would like to share with students the many joys I’ve experienced in the art of doll making over the years. I would like to assure them that they, too, can create “Art Doll” quality work. In the various workshops I offer, students will have an opportunity to work with paper clays, learn techniques for creating an effective armature, and even develop skills in facial painting in order to give a more “natural” look to their dolls. Decide which workshops are right for you. All the workshops are geared to provide valuable skills that will help further your doll making abilities. I will provide step-by-step guidance on how to achieve these goals. We will not attempt to capture realism; instead, my goal as instructor will be to help you express your own personal vision and have a great time in doing so. Book a workshop now!

Thank you, Lily!"
