FAQ

 

How difficult is the outdoor portion of the workshop?

 

The path to the beach is level and is a well-traveled path.  The walk takes about 10-20 minutes depending on the groups’ chosen speed, nature observation and questions.  It will require carrying a bag or backpack in which to put items collected and a plastic bag for trash collection at the site.  Bending to pick up items from the beach is required, however contact me if this is an issue and some arrangement may be made.

 

Must I be an artist to make a medicine doll?

 

Some dexterity, some creativity and diligence is helpful.  You will be sewing with thread and needle, cutting cloth and paper with scissors, painting, sawing wood, using a Dremel drill and other kinds of hand work.  Laura will help you make your vision for your medicine doll a reality.
