Frida Kahlo Cloth Dolls

Ref: C2342639

You will explore painted and hand sewing techniques to produce your very own cloth doll themed around the artist Frida Kahlo. We will take inspiration from the artist's famous style: bold bright colours and flowers adorning her hair serve as the perfect inspiration when designing your doll. This will be a relaxing and informal session where the aim is to create a doll following a simple pattern and adorn it with clothes. Embroidery techniques or paint can be used to add finer details to the the face or tights and shoes.
