Course outline: Add a little whimsy to your life, by joining me in my latest creative adventure, beading a small art doll! I’ll provide the face, the stuffed form, and detailed instructions, all you’ll need to do is add her unique personality. Your choice of beads and techniques, will transform your doll, into the muse of your dreams. Listen carefully to her whispers, and she’ll tell you how to proceed. Possible themes include, but are not limited to the sea, nature, buttons, steam punk, vintage and memorabilia.

Suitable for hoarding, collecting, or gift giving! Students should be prepared to laugh, relax and have fun! Think of it as a play date for adults!

Trading and sharing will be strongly encouraged! Your neighbour just might have the perfect finishing touch for your piece. The reverse is also true.
