Category: Instructor:


You will be guided in the creation of this simple, yet beautiful spirit doll. Engineering, construction and proportion for a well-balanced doll sculpture will be taught. A simple wood-burned design on the body, and techniques for placement of facial features gets you started. The sculpture will be enhanced with a beautiful copper jingle cone headdress with horse hair, and feathers in the background. A leather cape will give it a sophisticated finish. Embellishing with a turquoise necklace and mounting on a wooden stand will complete your project.

Please note
