Dollmaking is one of the crafts closest to Michelle’s heart. Creating dolls is akin to crafting up your own little friends. As the fabrics are added and the face is painted, what was just thread and stuffing becomes a being with personality and meaning. Dolls are used in many different magical paths. Some of the oldest artifacts historians have found are dolls and figurines. We have been creating little versions of ourselves from the very beginning. Dolls can represent people we have lost, people we wish existed, deities, and even those we wish ill.
In this class we’ll be making very simple, old world dolls. We’ll use natural fibers and herbs to fill their bellies and give them life. We’ll wrap them in vintage linens and silks. These dolls are intended to bring you joy and hopefully open to you the very ancient world of doll making.
No experience necessary but some basic sewing skills will be helpful.

 

Michelle VanderHouwen is the owner of Oak and Hawthorn and provides the plant babies for Ritualcravt’s annual plant sale.

Throughout all her years, she has studied art as a window into Spirit and the psyche, and Nature has been her church. Michelle believes that our hands are magnificent communicators. When we let them dig, sculpt, draw, scrape, tie and sew, we are sending messages to and from Heart Center. Our hands, full of sensation but devoid of reasoning, can create pure, honest prayer. In Michelle’s classes she teaches, with a variety of tools, different ways of accessing Spirit using our hands and hearts. Her goal is to help us all access the knowing we had at birth. Michelle is deeply knowledgeable about the spiritual wisdom of nature, studied Shamanic Herbalism with Darcey Blue, and walks with the soul of a Witch.
