About the Event
In this workshop you will create a fun plush doll with the guidance of Abby Aspen, a professional teaching artist with a specialty in fiber art. You will embellish a monster doll template before sewing and stuffing your creation to make your own plush doll. This project is suitable for all ages but does require fine motor skills such as threading a sewing needle and making stitches, young participants or individuals who cannot perform these skills independently may want to attend this workshop with an adult who can assist them as needed. Materials for this workshop are included.
Abby Aspen has more than 10 years of experience teaching art to a diverse population of students including students with a wide range of abilities, skill levels, and ages. Aspen is currently employed as a full–time K–8 art teacher and, as an artist, has exhibited artwork in more than 20 exhibitions in various galleries located locally, nationally, and internationally. Aspen received her bachelor of fine art in 2010 with an emphasis in fibers, but she has experience in working with a wide range of artistic mediums, including paint, drawing, digital art, mixed media, and photography, among others. Aspen currently lives in Tempe, Arizona, with her husband and two children with a third child on the way.
