Garden Pixie Workshop

Wouldn’t you love to find this little pixie dancing around in your flower garden?  She is a 12” figure with a wire armature body and cloth over clay face.  She is dancing in the center of a rose which is resting on a pedestal.  Very sweet…very fun to make!

What you’ll learn:

  •  Body armature for a fully articulated figure
  • Wrapping a body with batting to create muscle (cloth over wire wrapping)
  • Needle sculpting to define the body
  • Posing a body to achieve whimsical effects
  • Simple ways to mount a figure on found object(s)
  • Cloth over paper clay face
  • Soft delicate face painting techniques using acrylic paint
  • A super easy technique for making tiny fingers
  • Whimsical costuming & embellishing including petite garden slippers
  • Fun techniques to age wood and other found objects

This is such a fun class.  The techniques taught give a lot of room for self-expression and each doll turns out so unique!

Our theme this year is Alice in Wonderland.  Cyndi and Patti are creating dolls based on their love of the new movie and the books.   And, as you saw in the listing above, we will have a Mad Hatter Hat contest, so put your thinking caps on for the type of wacky hat you’d like to wear.

Pre and Post night hotel stays, airline reservations, hotel/ship transfers, will also be arranged based on your specific requirements.  Other fun activities are available on Cloth Doll Cruises website. 

Our wonderful leader is again Barbara Roby.  She’s worked her magic and blocked the best cabins on the ship for our group. 

Space in classroom sessions is limited so CALL NOW and confirm your spot.
