Ancestral Threads: Doll making

June 11 @ 10:00 am - June 12 @ 4:30 pm

$105.00 – $125.00

Explore the threads of ancestral folklore and magical practice through traditional handcrafts in this introduction to ceremonial doll-making in the Ukrainian tradition. Students will make a traditional Travnitsa (herbal medicine doll) and a second doll based on a simple Motanka design that incorporates some of the influences of their own ancestral cultures. Materials provided. Group discussions about diversity, cultural practices and world views.

Instructor: Nikki Manzie has worked as an artist for over 40 years. She has worked as a therapist and teacher of earth-based spirituality and medicine for over 28 years.  The two disciplines combine as she explores and integrates the traditions of her Ukrainian grandparents.
