Doll Making: A Form of Prayer; A Healing Practice




Facilitated by Marianela Iribarne

This workshop is based on a little book titled Mother Plays with Dolls by Elinor Pace Bailey. There is a child-like vulnerable quality that is evoked by a doll. Dolls have been used as comfort objects in the grieving process. Participants will be able to express emotion through their hands while making a doll in a comforting and safe space. When the heart is softened and opened healing can occur. No experience required…just an open heart. All materials will be provided.

You may bring your own materials (perhaps an article of clothing from your loved one), if you wish.
