The medicine doll is an ancient being familiar and beloved to many cultures around the world. I believe in the ancestral medicine of healing and enchantment – to weave life and love into creation by making it solely by hand with pure and natural fibres. This act of creation is not something outside of us but a natural gift to birth and weave a bridge to the source, to the ancestors and to our own spirit – the dreamer within the dream.
The process of dollmaking is simple and slow and passes through our own hands in each step – from fossicking in nearby Sherbrooke Forest for plant medicines from the forest floor, creating personal medicine bundles that become the belly of the doll and weaving her or him into existence with one tool only – the felting needle. With one needle we work thousands of tiny fibres over many many hours binding and forming the shape of a doll. we then adorn her with natural fibres gathered from around the world and often in support of helping endangered and rare animals to thrive, plant medicines and crystals.
