We are so excited to have Joanna Pierotti with us teaching her beautiful Olde Soul Dolls. Joanna created and began selling these stunning dolls years ago. Clothed with found objects, metal and tattered cloth comes together with hand painted bisque ware, vintage ephemera, rhinestone, chains and more to make up these Olde Souls. In this full day workshop Joanna will teach you her painting techniques and patina process on new bisque ware doll parts. You will then learn how to build the body, create a ruffled petticoat, and add layers of fabric and lace all done with simple hand stitching. You will decorate her dress in whatever embellishments you bring... think chain, charms, buttons, and more. In order to allow your doll to fly, Joanna will share her secrets for creating layered, fibrous wings.
