TRY YOUR "HEAD" AT DOLL MAKING!
All of my workshops are technique-based and designed to infuse you with creative juice to take your doll artistry to the next level. There are two kinds of workshops: full doll, where the goal is to finish an entire project, and technique, where we focus on learning an advanced process. Technique classes can be completed in one day, where entire doll workshops require several weeks. I'm eager to share my knowledge with you. So no matter which workshop you choose, count on picking up plenty of tips and tricks.
Workshops are held both ONLINE AND IN PERSON. I'm available to teach in the NYC area on an occasional basis, and online classes are held twice a year. If you'd like to be notified when the next workshop will be, please write to me and I'll be sure to let you know. If you can't attend a workshop or want to get started right now, you can download one of my E-patterns. They are full of step-by-step photos to take you every step of the way.
The first time I found out about cloth doll making, I was at a sewing shop learning how to use my new sewing machine. I saw a group of about 12-15 women sitting around a table, having a little "show and tell" of DOLLS. I can still feel myself staring with my eyes wide and my mouth open in astonishment. Grown women "playing dolls..." It seemed to go completely against nature and I had to be a part of it. I have been captivated with this art form ever since. When I teach a workshop, I strive to imbue my students with a bit of that same novelty and excitement!
