Most people recognize the name Wendy Lawton because of her dolls. For almost three decades she’s sculpted winsome faces out of clay to be molded for Lawton Doll Company’s award-winning limited edition porcelain dolls. In 2006, she was awarded the industry’s highest honor, The Lifetime Achievement Award. But if you ask Wendy, she’ll tell you she is a storyteller.“For most of my life I’ve been telling stories, she says.” Sometimes I tell a story in porcelain by creating a doll. At other times I tell the story using words.”There is something about the reading we do as children that stays with us forever. It’s one of the reasons the dolls Wendy creates are always so closely aligned with literature and the books she writes are steeped in sensory detail.
Come discover the magical art of the storyteller thru doll art. Start your 2nd Saturday adventure first at Art Of Toys in the heart of the Handle District then choose from 22 restaurants within walking distance! Art Activity will be out front FREE for all ages from 5:30 till dark with Artie Annette!
