Learn the art of doll make-unders and become a fashion doll hacktivist in this workshop with Devon Rescue Dolls.
This two-hour workshop will be run twice to allow more people to take part (please select the appropriate 11am OR 2pm ticket after you click 'Register'). The workshop is free to attend (dolls will be supplied).
Fashion dolls such as Barbie and Bratz are sometimes seen as an extreme embodiment of society’s narrow expectations of consumer culture, beauty and physical form. Learn the art of doll make-unders and become a fashion doll hacktivist in this workshop with Professor Emma Cayley of Devon Rescue Dolls.
Thoughtful craftivism will be combined with gentle discussion about issues such as gender, sexuality, disability, materials and remaking – all of which will be delivered age-appropriately for those taking part.
Open to anyone aged 9+ but children must be supervised. If you are booking for a young person please only book one ticket for them; you do not need a ticket to accompany them.
This event is part of #brilliantbodies, a Fun Palace being run by PhD students of the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership.
Fun Palaces is a free, nationwide celebration of arts and science,
