Instructor

Marlaine Verhelst

Hand sculpted Porcelain - Air Dry Clay - Textiles

Marlaine Verhelst works and teaches in several mediums. Mostly her pieces are sculpted directly of porcelain, but also in air dry clay. Sculpting and painting are Marlaine’s favorite aspects of the process of creating a doll. Her dolls are human with a fantasy touch. “Less is more” is her maxim for the final result. Textiles are her other love. She works as a guide and teacher in a Museum of Textiles in her home town. Marlaine is a proud NIADA artist member since 1999 and has a lot of experience in teaching, online and in person. She is looking forward to meeting you!
