Event details

Following her Zoom workshop in July, we are delighted to launch a video where Rita Kappia will introduce her Empowerment Doll project and provide instruction to create your own doll.


We join her in her workshop to hear about the significance of the art of doll making, what she hopes to achieve with her work, and the importance of making and owning a doll for people of all ages, genders, and ethnicities.

A limited number of free packs of materials will be available from Bonington Gallery so you can make your own doll while you are watching the video live, or you can watch the event back on the Formations YouTube channel and make a doll at your own leisure. If you would like a free pack of materials then please email formations@ntu.ac.uk.

Rita Kappia is an artist dollmaker from Derby. Rita Kappia's Empowerment Dolls have become synonymous with exploring artistic expression and self-identity - an exploration of one’s sense-of-self. Her collectables have served as a reminder and representation of new empowering thoughts, feelings and expressions to explore and cultivate.
