In this all day workshop you will utilize your creativity and imagination to fashion a rather odd art doll- a “Pod Head”, infusing the theme of Nature into your unique design. You will start by making a very simple torso from inexpensive, easy to obtain materials and use additional mixed-media goodies such as beeswax, paint, alcohol inks, rusted paper and more to create a surface design for your doll. The head will be made from polymer clay, choosing from a variety of molds for the face. In keeping with the nature theme, your doll will sport a seed pod, (included in your kit), for the most unusual of head-wear.

|Saturday, July 28, 2012||"Abstractly Yours: A Bobble Doll on a Wire"||ADAA (All Dolls Are Art) Convention, Austin, Texas.|
Create a curious art doll whose wire-supported body is designed to bobble and sway with just a touch! In this all day workshop you will use polymer clay and simple geometric templates to guide you when forming the pillow-shaped body for you doll. Magic happens when you use tools and other implements on the clay to make impressions and abstract patterns. There will be options for surface design techniques: Go for a minimalist’s approach, or over the top… you choose! Fabricate a polymer clay head starting with a choice of face molds, then complete the look with outlandish head décor!
