Time: 2 to 4:30pm

Spend a Sunday afternoon creating three “uniquely different” mixed media dolls. We provide the inspiration, techniques and materials. Dolls can be richly expressive even in their most basic incarnations. You can express a mood, a message, a wish, a prayer, a fantacy, a proverb. A guardian angel is always welcome; likewise a fairy godmother, or make a self-portrait doll that expresses your aspirations. Making a simple doll has less to do with getting each part “right,” and more to do with your imaginative use of seemingly random bits and pieces. If you have some parts that you might like to use, bring them along; scraps of favorite fabrics, beads, buttons, sticks for arms and legs, anything goes. We will have samples along with bits and pieces on hand to help you assemble a three fair maidens.

Inspired by the magazine, Cloth, Paper, Scissors’ subscriber challenge, students will create their very own small, personalized model homes. Beginning with the template provided, you will be able to create two or three uniquely different dwellings. We will stencil, paint, stamp, mask, transfer and otherwise “art it up.” If you have some bits and pieces that you might like to incorporate, bring them along; scraps of your favorite papers, fabrics, beads, buttons, sticks for roofing, foil for windows, anything goes. We will have samples along with plenty of supplies on hand to help you assemble your very own mixed media village.

Have you ever wanted to learn the art of Batik? Here is your chance . . . an all day workshop experimenting with wax, indigo dye and the fine art of Batik, the ancient art of wax resist on fabric. To make a batik, selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. The parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original colour. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more elaborate and colourful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed and the cloth is ready for wearing or showing. (Bring a snack, sack lunch and a drink.) We are hoping for this workshop to become an annual tradition. Limited class room space so register early.
