Celebrate your creativity by making a fiber Goddess Doll to nurture your spirit, grace your projects, and protect your workspace. We’ll provide a sewn goddess body, so you’ll be able to focus on the fun part – making your Goddess unique and special to you. Just stuff your doll body, then add stitching, beads, crystals, pearls, or … whatever sparks your creative joy.
This is a two-session class that will meet for an hour each session. Session one will be online and will cover design and headdress suggestions plus embroidery stitch practice. Session two will be a hybrid class (online or in-person at the SEFAA Center) and will focus on adding fine details using beads and other embellishments and sharing your doll with your classmates.
