Finding Your Troll Tale - Creating Your Troll Tail. The Myths and Talismans of Trolls

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the Troll world, tales and remembered experiences are of great importance. Trolls remember their tales by collecting various small objects and tying them in a patterned sequence onto their tails or clothing, using each object as a part of their "remembering." In this workshop, Brian and Wendy Froud will help you to discover your own tale. You will then create your "tail" - in this case either a wooden stick, necklace, bracelet or fabric/leather strip, using natural objects and a small, polymer clay object created in the workshop. You may also bring something of your own that you would like to incorporate into the finished piece.
