Join us this fall for a very special workshop, as Gilding the Lily presents a unique art experience with one of our favorite artists. This all day workshop on Brookdale will include a catered lunch for our guests, and the opportunity to spend the day in the company of a very talented doll artist. We are delighted to welcome back Colleen Moody, who was to be joined by her dear friend Iva Wilcox. Unfortunately Iva has had to cancel her trip, however she is working closely with Colleen to ensure the project will be presented as originally designed. You will be creating the exquisite confection shown here, learning new techniques and skills in this all inclusive class. Just bring yourself, your imagination, and the tools requested below.

Doll maker Colleen Moody and folk artist Iva Wilcox have teamed up to bring a one-of-a-kind project to Gilding the Lily this fall. Though sadly Iva won't be able to be with us, The "Winter Wishes" theater workshop will be a full day of creating a wintry scene complete with two snow ladies amidst a winter wonderland, in a lighted, arched theater.
You will learn how to assemble and install a light fixture inside an arched theater you will create and cover with snow. Inside the theater, you will create a wintry scene of snow covered trees, branches and a small real wood bench that is settled amid a blanket of snow on the ground. Sculpt a tiny robin and little mushrooms to add those special touches to your lamp.

Who better to enjoy this setting then two lovely snow ladies! You will sculpt these snow beauties from clay and learn the techniques to dress them with new and vintage fabrics, tinsel, a warm hat and fancy top hat to give them true old-world charm.

You won't want to miss this special one day teaching event that is sure to have you leave with an heirloom piece you will treasure for years to come!

Class will run from 9 am - 6 pm, with an hour lunch break. You will be provided with a class kit that includes all the supplies to complete this special project.
