It's about creating serene, rustic beauty from paper,clay and wood: The art of hand-sculpting and assembling Santos Cage dolls and other art dolls
Santos Cage dolls have gained popularity over the last few years.
They have a serene, rustic beauty and sometimes almost eerie quality that has transformed them from use as religious icons in the 17th and 18th centuries to beautiful works of art.
Each doll has it’s own personality and as you sculpt and create you will see your own style and beauty develop.
In this class, You will learn to make three different versions of Cage dolls.
You will learn techniques in assembling armature, sculpting and painting faces, and using unconventional materials to make beautiful figural dolls.
