Strange Dolls 2 Day Workshop
Saturday & Sunday, July 12th & 13th
10:00 am – 4:00 pm (lunch break each day)
Davis Studio, 4 Howard Street, Burlington, VT
You will be guided through making the body of your doll using polymer clay and fabric. You will also learn how to sculpt a face and create the head of your doll. The clay pieces will be cured overnight.
Assemble the parts you have created. Sew the skirt and blouse, paint details on the face, add hair and any other desired embellishments. You will leave this workshop with a finished polymer clay art doll.
The studio will provide all sculpting tools, sewing machines, polymer clay, doll hair and other basic supplies. All materials are included in the cost.
There will be a one hour break for lunch on both days. The studio is conveniently located near Speeder and Earl’s coffee shop as well as a variety of sandwich shops in the event you want to eat out or need a snack.
NOTE: Please consider bringing small amounts of your favorite fabrics, trims and tiny buttons to add a personal touch to your creation or feel free to use fabrics we have available in the studio. This class is designed for beginners, so you do not need any prior experience sculpting or using polymer clay, but it would be helpful if you have some familiarity with using a sewing machine for simple straight stitches. The studio has several machines, but if you prefer to bring your own sewing machine please feel free to do so.
What To Do, Where To Stay?
Are you traveling to the area? Summer in Vermont is glorious. The studio is conveniently located downtown, very close to the Church Street Marketplace and the beautiful Lake Champlain waterfront. I created a Pinterest page that has a ton of resources for your visit.Check it out!
Here are some places to stay that are very close to the studio and downtown:
