Have you been inspired to create a little friend yourself? I teach one-day and multi-day workshops, and all my workshops are custom designed to fit the needs and interests of each particular group or individual.
I host most workshops in either Westchester County, NY or Connecticut, but if you're interested in gathering together a group of doll-making friends, a workshop can also come your way!
Please feel free to contact me to discuss details.
Making a Natural Fiber Art Doll Workshop
Join me for an intensive 2-day workshop and learn the secrets of Waldorf-inspired doll making.
The class covers many doll-making techniques and design details. You will create a 13” doll and learn how to construct a head using rolling and needle-felting techniques, stuff the body with wool and attach body parts, add a belly button, knees, and a little bum, and finally, crochet a mohair wig.
All materials (including a doll pattern, pre-sewn body from beautiful Swiss skin fabric, sweet-smelling sheep wool and mohair for hair) are provided.
Suitable for beginners in doll making but basic hand sewing and crochet skills are required.
Please note, the workshop does not cover doll clothing.
The workshop usually runs from 9.30 AM to 6.00 PM on both days.
