One of this year’s featured artists at “A Taste of the Arts” will be renowned feather artist Lorra Lee Rose. She will be instructing the “The Goddess Within You” workshop that will take up three 90-minute sessions. Meant for all skill levels, students will make a Natural Material Spirit Doll, learning proportions and building a goddess armature and shape. Explore a variety of construction methods using some of the artist’s favorite materials: lush velvets, vintage lace, printed leather, hand dyed and hand spun wools to form her dress. Select an ammonite that will suggest the face of the goddess, and for the headdress, there’ll be a collection of natural colored feathers. This is the one workshop that will cost $10 extra to cover the unique supplies. Remember, when Rose sells one of her dolls they start at $200.
