Description: Raggedy Anne is a charming and traditional folk art doll that, in this class, has become comically sophisticated and highly embellished with beadwork. Using bead-embroidery techniques, you will create this adorable Raggedy face and then attach it to the doll body. You will receive a complete kit of pre-sewn and stuffed body parts, ribbons, feathers or hair supplies, and lots of beads to create her costume. Using simple techniques for beading a face, you can later design your own faces to bead. You can even make personalized dolls using your children's or grandchildren's faces. The instructor will show you how to turn Raggedy Anne's face into a brooch, creating a functional element to this doll. In addition to the beading, you will learn how to create a unique and original costume design.
