“Doll making is a magical activity; a potent cocktail of catharsis, conjuring and play.”
– Melissa Ichiuji

Inspired by her exhibition Make You Love Me, Melissa Ichiuji will be conducting a class at American University Museum, entitled Guise and Dolls. In this two day workshop, participants will draw inspiration from personal history, memories, and desires, choose a theme for their portrait and then learn basic techniques for building armatures and found objects to create a unique art doll.

“The doll is an extension of the self. Also a platform, a ground on which to act out dreams, impulses, entirely free of responsibility and consequences”.
– Melissa Ichiuji
