"After all, we cannot know what we are going to express. What is really creative is bound to be a surprise because it is something we couldn't have thought of. This is the thing that we resist the most. We want to know where we are going, why we are doing it, and what it is going to give to us. We want to know it all. To be creative means becoming more familiar with being a little lost. If we are always full of what we want to do, there is no room for the new."- Michell Cassou
From the book, "making Creative Cloth Dolls" by Marthe Le Van. Lark Books.
The Pattern is called, "Clarity".
The steps to making a doll can take many paths. I will be teaching a 3 hour doll making workshop this Saturday and I took time to map out the path I want to take to teach my class. I look forward to seeing where my students will take the instruction. Creative people hear the same instruction but interpret it differently (in a vibrant and refreshing way!) The last photo here shows the doll yet unfinished. I will be adding a few more elements. She also will not have a pin in her neck! LOL!
