Join world famous textile sculptor Johanna Flannigan, aka The Pale Rook to explore the stories you know, the stories you hear, and the stories you want to tell. Work with a mix of traditional cloth doll making methods and free form textile sculpture, as well as incorporating found objects and natural materials to create a unique figurative sculpture. You will learn how to recognise emerging characters in your doll making, and how to use the inherent qualities of your materials to bring these characters to life.

About Your Tutor:

“I studied textiles at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and fashion the Royal College of Art in London. I have been making dolls, puppets and creatures since childhood but only stopped hiding them from other people in the last few years.

Themes of transformation and transmutation are always present in my work. I create figures that are frozen in the moment between one state and the next. Rather than aiming to recreate a flawless, idealised view of the human figure in a doll, I find beauty in the incomplete, the broken, the decayed, lost, unexpected and vulnerable.

All of my pieces are individually hand dyed using herbal and plant infusions gathered in Scotland and prepared by hand in my studio. Each piece is a response not only to my own creative inclination at the time of making, but to the season, weather, vegetation and environment around me at a particular time and place.”


Testimonials:

“Johanna really helps free you of pre conceived ideas of how to create. I found it extremely liberating.”

“This is what happens when you go on a Pale Rook doll making course. You shake loose and create from your soul.”

“I had in my head what I wanted to create and Johanna gently coaxed it out of me and enabled the process of bringing him into being. He’s a very personal creation, he’s mine”
