Recap of A Doll Story Workshop with Danita!
Here are just some of the awesome dolls that were made this past weekend by Danita's students. But before they looked like this, they went through many phases.
Like this ... sewn, stuffed, painted, and sealed ... but before that, they looked different still.
Like this ... before they were painted ... where we were planning and practicing our faces. Here's my practice face for my doll. Fangs and all.
And before that, we transferred template lines and sewed and stuffed.
Through each step, Danita was full of patience and wisdom as she taught us her secrets and methods.
And the students worked hard. We all gained such an appreciation for the amount of work that dollmakers go through. We all joked that we didn't make dolls. We gave birth to them!
I'm excited that Danita will be working with me to plan her next workshop that she will teach in 2014. Awesome art. Awesome instructor.
See you in Studio CRESCENDOh!
