Paper Dolls are not just childrens’ toys, but an expressive art form!

Generally, we think of paper dolls as childrens’ toys, but they have had many purposes in the past, in many cultures; society’s ideal of women and children, latest fashion, images of fairy tales and historical characters, puppets. For artists, the form has endless possibilities, both flat and three dimensional, including many techniques such as painting, collage and paper sculpture. There is even a guild of contemporary paper doll makers ( OPDAG ).

In this workshop, we will make two flat forms, the basic flat figure with tab clothes, and a flat stick puppet. The materials will be provided. (Think Christmas Present for Someone Special!)
