This workshop aims to introduce Vinny's contemporary doll making practice, the core of which is making whimsical dolls after people we know, using colour, pattern, texture, witty details and creative techniques to produce unique objects of design and artistry.

The theme for this introductory workshop evolves around the participants: they will be making dolls that look like them.

The participants will briefly discuss with the instructor details of their doll and materials to use. They will then sketch the desired shape of their doll, followed by making a simple doll pattern. This will be followed by an introduction to essential doll making techniques, including hand embroidery, fabric cutting, turning, stuffing and embellishing the doll.

By the end of the workshop participants with get to take home their finished mini-me creation!
