Claudette: A Cage Doll Marla L. Niederer, Cloth Doll Artist


The words “Romance is the Music of Life,” were remembered from a dream that inspired the creation of Claudette. Claudette is a mixed media, needle-sculpted cloth, ball jointed, cage art doll, with a cloth facial overlay. During this workshop a multitude of cloth doll making techniques in addition to mixed media techniques will be presented. You will learn how to needle-sculpt a cloth head and how to attach a cloth overlay onto the head to create a softer look. A unique system of creating ball joints for the arms and wrists will be presented in this class.
