Donoma is a Woman of Potential standing 24? tall. She is a soft sculpture doll with fiber, bead, and other natural element embellishments. Her body is created from curving cuts of fabric pieced together. She may become a journey of spiritual discovery for you as you select her fabrics, fibers and embellishments and adorn your Woman. My original Woman started my doll making in a new direction and her soft subtle colors called forth her name - Donoma ? which is Osage for Dawn or Days Beginning.
An intermediate skill level in sewing would be helpful but not absolutely necessary. Most important is bringing a desire to make a doll and explore.
Techniques include pattern piecing, articulating fingers, fabric creation, face and body embellishment, beading.
The class will flow as follows: Supply list and selection of materials
Discussion of sewing terms
Making the fabric and cutting out the body
Fiber embellishment of the doll body pieces
Putting the body together
Making the head and arms
Hair and sleeves Other embellishments Finishing
There are lots of photos of the construction and easily followed step-by-step instructions ? and of course, a classroom where you can discuss and share your progress.
So join in and have some fun and let Barbara guide you through this enjoyable journey.
Class begins October 25, 2013
