18C252A - Akasha Dolls18C252A - Akasha Dolls

Akasha is the Sanskrit word for Spirit, but more directly, it means the basis and essence of all things in the material world. Spirit dolls are art objects that are easy to create from recycled materials. These spirit dolls were initially created as a way work through grief and trauma. The ritualized deconstruction of the garments and repetitive wrapping works as both art technique and meditative process. The finished dolls become the embodiment of the spirit of memory and can be used as a vehicle to transfigure sadness. These dolls are easy to create with simple household materials. Some physical dexterity is needed for hand sewing and stitching.

Materials Fee includes:
A Porcelain/bisque doll for each student to make one doll
Empty two-liter soda bottles for the base
