Welcome to My New Tutorial....

"Artful Gathering's New Season"
A new season of "Artful Gathering" starts today, May 1st, and this will be my 3rd year as an instructor.  This year will be extra special because I will be offering a workshop teaching how to make my very popular PODD doll.  The PODD's have been a staple of "Soft in the Head" for almost 15 years and only available as a finished piece, NOW for
the first time I'm offering it, not only as a pattern, but I will also show you all my secrets on how to create one of your own.   All the PODD's (which stands for PORTLY ORIGINAL DESIGNER DOLL) characters are made from the same basic body design and then you get to spin your magic to discover what creature lies inside by using clay, fabric, roving, wool felt and a whole bunch of odds and ends.  To get a good idea of what I'm
talking about visit: www.softinthehead-poddsville.blogspot.com and get to know all the residents there.  You will see that they all have the same body but that's where it ends.

This year in "Artful Gathering" the theme is the wild west.  The best way to introduce the wild west is with a cowboy, a cowboy bunny named "Hop-A-Long"!
There will be a kit available for those taking my class.  You will find it in my Etsy shop.  The kit will have all the fabrics you will need, which there is about six different ones and all the accents like buttons, hair, whiskers, lasso and feather.
Hope to meet many new artists this year in my PODD class.  The workshops are always so much fun and it's exciting to see what everyone comes up with.  Love sharing all the pictures.  Come join the fun: www.artfulgatheringevents.com
