What is so appealing about a doll? They are a source of delight to a child but often mysterious, a little ominous and disturbing to an adult.
Long before they were children’s play-toys, small figures were used by adults in various forms of ritual and ceremony.
Made of sticks, wire, metal, string, beads, cloth, wax, found objects and all manner of unusual things, dolls possess a succinct and strange ability to embody powerful energy.
To create your own doll figure, bring any kind of suitable material that appeals to you including – but not limited to – sticks, cloth, beads, teeth, hair, wool, string, rope, wire, small clothing, clay etc.
Some tools and materials will be available – including whatever you can find ‘naturally’ on our rural property.
Examples will be provided.
