Spirit Doll making is a portal to a realm of creativity, dream, past memories and half forgotten glimpses of our true nature. Following the traditions of tribal women’s healing gatherings, we can re connect with the earth in a very creative way. Our ancestors called these dolls Spirit keepers, Medicine dolls, healing dolls or Spirit dolls and indeed they have a magical quality. They are considered guardians, talismans, messengers and healers, speaking to the maker’s intuition as they are formed. We use Driftwood as the basis, fabric entwined to make form, beads, feathers and shells for decoration and lastly a clay face to bring your doll to life. Gozo is an energy powerhouse, with the crisscrossing of ley lines and abundant ancient temples sitting on a bedrock of calcite crystal. By tucking a Gozo crystal inside our spirit dolls, we can harness a little of the Island’s magic. No experience necessary, this is an intuitive process. Your doll does not have to be skillfully made, what is important, is the intention whilst making them. Please note these are not toys
I have worked as a designer/artist/gallery owner for 35 years. I now live on the island of Gozo, the quieter sister island to Malta. My studio and gallery are in the heart of Victoria. I am a mixed media artist, using the natural resources of the Island in my work. I take much pleasure in helping others discover their creative path and connectedness to the earth through indigenous art forms.
I provide herbal Tea and water. There are cafés close by for other drinks and snacks.
This class will take place in my Studio at my Gallery in the heart of Victoria. The space is bright with good light.
最多4人參加，年齡須滿18歲。 My studio is up a spiral staircase and not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. I can however make space for 1 on the ground floor. Do let me know before booking.
If you have small personal items or charms you would like to add to your doll, bring them along.
If you are travelling from Malta by public transport, please check times as it takes longer than you think.
