My friend Mai-Liis has been creating these wonderful art dolls. I took a class online at joggles.com and fell in love with the process. I made two dolls with the intention of making a lot more and now she has moved into healing art dolls and now this one with a background for it.
Here is some information regarding this class. Go to her website to see some amazing dolls from her previous class with healing dolls. Sorry I missed that one!
This is a sample of the Vision Mini Quilt class I will be teaching through Joggles.com, beginning March 7. The concept is a take-off from the "Vision Boards" you may have heard of....a cross between fantasy and subconscious plans for the future. The doll will be made separately, and can be added to the mini quilt (16 x 20) permanently or by the use of a few bits of Velcro. The mini quilt, serving as an extension for the doll which represents the maker of the art piece, is an easy entry into the realm of art quilts. I will assist each student in expressing a personal vision. My own doll has feathered arms for flying, and is adorned with many power objects. She is both beautiful and "tribal", perfectly at home in an ethereal setting which contains birds and flowers.
