Event Description

Join us for a two week workshop creating Japanese Wishing Dolls, also known as Daruma. The Daruma is a traditional Japanese doll, which in Japan has become a symbol of perseverance and luck. Upon receiving a doll a wish is made, and one eye is filled in. Once the wish comes true you fill in the other eye!

Week 1: We'll create our paper mache forms, and let them dry, methods of paper mache and plastering will be discussed.

Week 2: We'll paint and embellish our dolls to give them some personality!
