Fabric Mummy Art Doll Class
Audience: Adults and Kids
Suggested Schedule: 4-6 hour workshop or 6 week / 12 hour class
This little mummy doll figure is the result of years of drawing, painting, collaging, stitching, and finally constructing it in three dimensions! It's simple form allows for a lot of play with materials and techniques, including fabric piecing and surface embellishment. The form is based on magical mummiform figures from Native American and ancient Egyptian culture, and can be modified in personal ways. Participants in this workshop will be shown how to make one of these dolls with pieced fabric and then ways it can be developed to have character, identity, and even function with threads, fibers, beads, and more.
