Would you like to sneak a peek at one without the expense of travel and conference fees? Then this DVD - a work in progress by past NIADA President, Antonette Cely is just the ticket!
Join Antonette as she wanders through the fabulous Gallery Night, chatting with the NIADA artists about their dolls.
A Fistful of Demos
Jane Davies gives some great tips for costuming in miniature scale; Diane Keeler reveals how she makes a wig cap that fits like a glove; Annie Wahl tries to lead a group in crocheting tiny doll hats; Elisabeth Flueler-Tomamichael takes us inside her dolls to teach wire armatures; Dan Fletcher gives a once-in-a-lifetime demonstration of creping washi paper.
Pour yourself a cup of tea and then sit down with Chris Chomick and Peter Meder, as they reflect on what led them to make dolls, puppets and automata.
Let Annie Wahl introduce you to some of Nana’s family and tell you how Richard Simmons adopted them as his own.
Flip through the pages of your favorite doll magazines with Nancy Wiley, and watch her develop a style that lands her work with Demi Moore on the cover of George Magazine.
Let Antonette take you inside NIADA, and introduce you to the people and dolls that you’re likely to meet there. Once you’ve caught a glimpse, we’re sure that you’ll sign up to attend the very next conference.
