Soul Doll Experience
This is a process-oriented experience combining art, play and the power of dolls. Transform a simple cloth doll into a tool for growth, change, and healing. Growth occurs in an environment where curiosity and self-exploration are given free range. Adapting to new ideas and techniques creates a landscape for change. A non-judgmental space can be the tranquil place where healing occurs. The Soul Doll Experience is a process in which creative freedom encourages the inner creative soul to come out and play.
Dolls have been around almost as long as humanity, taking many forms in virtually all cultures. Materials range from rocks and sticks to elaborate ornate artistic creations. They are more than toys, often having spiritual significance, even at times topping wedding cakes, and at other times touching some part of us that needs comforting. Whether the doll is a playmate, a role model, or a therapeutic tool is strictly a personal preference. In short a doll can be whatever you need it to be.
Through the process of individual inventiveness, a unique piece with personal significance will emerge. No special skills or abilities needed, this workshop offers an opportunity for self-expression and spontaneity. Dolls and materials for embellishing will be provided, and participants may bring some trinkets they want to include in their dolls. Let your inner child make Art and see what emerges. Daydream, remember, relax and have a fun filled day.
