Creepy doll at Small But Mighty
Yesterday, I took extraordinarily creepy workshop over at Small But Mighty in Haslett Michigan. Kip the artist in residence/owner of this fun creative space offered this haunting workshop taught by Jill Quillinan We had so much fun. Jill shared several wonderful techniques. We made two creepy style dolls. She then walked us through making this wonderful coffin pendant. As my soldering skills are a little rusty I was a little anxious about coming up with something that didn't look like a lump lead. Jill had each step of the process all worked out. All of us were able to work at a pace comfortable for us.. but never feel like we were behind or way ahead and needed to take a step back. Small But Mighty. Also keep tabs on Jill, I'm sure she will be becoming one of the "hot" must take instructors in the future. There was talk of offering this workshop later in the month.. I'm sure if there is interest it will be put on the schedule.
