II. The Biblical Figures Workshop organized by the Episcopal Commission for the Biblical Apostolate – CBCP headed by the executive secretary Fr. Oscar Alunday, SVD on October 15 to 19, 2007 with the theme: “as I had been there myself” (Mk 10:46-52) with resource persons direct from Germany Sr. Ines Schmiegel and Mrs. Susanne Uteschil.


The workshop is more than just the production of bibliodrama dolls. It is an interactive experience among the participants themselves from the first instant of shaping the figures into dolls. The dolls become alive at the first moment of their being shaped by their “creators’.  As the course progresses, the able facilitators will accompany the participants through creative Bible-work, body awareness exercises, meditative dances and Bibliodrama elements in the framework of a biblical message.  


Working steps include: display of materials, explanation of work-steps;  feet making;  head making (defining head shape, head shaping and processing, head gluing,), hands making, trunk making, modeling of head with Aquaform – to be dried for 8 hrs., covering arms with Duvetine, covering complete body, head covering with Duvetine, wigs cutting and fixing, clothing of figures.
