I'm Rita Kappia, an artist and educator based in the UK. My specialisation lies in making hand-made, one-of-a-kind art dolls known as Empowerment Dolls, each bearing an uplifting message. These unique creations reflect a fusion of my West African heritage, with my mother originating from Ghana and my father from Sierra Leone, along with my upbringing in the UK, resulting in truly distinctive works of art.
Background and Artistic Journey
Following the completion of my BSc degree in design development, I dedicated the subsequent 18 years to becoming a self-taught doll maker, cultivating my distinct style of doll crafting using wire, beads, paper, spoons, and an array of other materials. My artistic creativity knows no bounds and continues to evolve. I also derive immense satisfaction from breathing new life into upcycled and recycled materials. My art has reached a global audience, with a notable presence in the United States. Every doll I create is unique and made with love.
Empowerment Doll Workshops
In addition to crafting Empowerment Art Dolls, I offer workshops that empower individuals to create their own unique dolls. These workshops are adaptable for various settings and age groups, including children and adults. Whether it's for parties, community gatherings, or even weddings, my workshops offer an engaging and eco-friendly experience by incorporating upcycling and recycling. Join me to exceed your expectations.
My workshops are highly flexible and can be tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Whether you seek a distinctive party activity, a team-building exercise, or a creative addition to your special event, I can design an experience that aligns with your goals and theme.
What to Anticipate
In these workshops, participants will unlock their creative potential, immerse themselves in the art of doll-making, and explore the empowering process of crafting their very own unique dolls. It's an opportunity to express your creativity, build connections with others, and produce meaningful works of art.
Empowerment for All Ages
My workshops are suitable for both children and adults, making them a versatile choice for diverse settings. It's an opportunity to learn, grow, and be inspired by the magic of art.
