A weekend with Molly Stanton

 On January 14th Colleen Athens and I packed up our sculpting Gear and Drove to Quakertown PA , for a fun and educational  2 day  Doll Sculpting workshop on the 16th and17th With Molly Stanton .The Workshop was held  at Molly's Cozy home studio ,about a 20 min drive from our Hotel .We stoped to pick up a light lunch on our way . We arrived a few min before 11 am ,the starting time and were happy to see a fellow sculptor and friend Dea  had already arrived for the workshop . Thank you  Dea for turning us on to Molly and Her work ! 
      Here are a few of the  45 photos I took during the Class .I hope you enjoy them , and that they inspire you to take a workshop with Molly ,she not only teaches doll sculpting but Dragons and creatures too! The Workshop was worth the trip  I know I will be traveling to Quakertown again to sculpt with Molly .

Thanks to Molly I now know How to make Beautiful hands

Look she stands !

I have Fabric , hair and embellishments picked out for her costume ,and have started Jazzing up the wired wings molly provided us with .I have also started to paint slippers on the feet Molly made for all of us .So it shouldn't be too long before I post photos of a finished Doll .

Hi Heather, I am so glad that you enjoyed Molly's class. It was wonderful to see you and Colleen again. I thought your work was beautiful and so smooth. I can't wait to see the finished doll. Molly is a treasure. She is so knowledgeable and able to teach in an easy and fun manner. I love it that our individual creativity is left intact and each of our dolls will look different. I look forward to reading your blog and learning about your creative journey. Dea
