Sculpted and Tailored Dolls: The Artful Craft of Vivian Huggins

June 20, 2021

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until June 29, 2021

Free

I have been making dolls for a long time out of everything from paper, to sticks and mud.  I wanted to make a doll that had lots of detail.  I used clay for the hands, head and feet, and then attached them to a cloth body.  The first clay dolls I made were with air-dry clay when I was 13 in 2018.  The air-dry clay was heavy and would crumble easily, especially when we played with them.  In the last two years I have discovered paper-clay, which is far better at staying together, and much lighter.  My favorite dolls to make wear historic fashions.  I sometimes model them after real people, and I am just beginning to experiment with storybook characters.–Vivian Huggins
