Take a walk on the wild side (or the mild side, if that more your thing!) with this simply-constructed, but simply stunning wall doll. The workshop will be divided into easily-managed sections with thorough coverage of the whole process, from sculpting through to final painting and finishing. There will be detailed step-by-step instructions with lots of photos including short vide-os where required. The finished wall-hanging doll is approximately 18” (46 cms) tall.
Once your doll is constructed you will have a small “canvas” upon which you will be encouraged to express your individuality with paint, stitch, collage, applique, or whatever else I haven’t thought of!

Support will be offered through the whole process via direct contact with the tutor.
Suitable for all skill levels, but sewing and painting experience a definite plus!

Her career has followed distinct paths of art-making and exhibiting along with teaching in many different situations, from classrooms to seminars both in Australia and overseas.

Susie enjoys the process of sparking dormant creativity in her students—she finds joy in seeing them able to make tangible what they envisage in their heads!
Susie’s own work follows different, but parallel streams that often inform and cross-pollinate each other: she make dolls that are definitely recognizable as such, but she also make mixed media assemblage works. She also dabbles with painting and textile works and of course, she always draws!
Susie’s whole life is defined by art.
