Two days of doll-making workshop with all materials and lunches provided. We will be making a 12″ Waldorf inspired doll with traditional face, ears, and little buttocks, knee caps, belly button. The workshop will be help in english.
You will learn how to make the face of your doll super cute. I will teach you to use rolling technic to fill the limbs, to create nice and smooth limbs.
For the hair of the doll I will be bringing cute ready made mohair wigs.
Before the workshop you will be able to choose the colour of the hair and the skin you wish to have for your doll.
It is not necessary to have doll-making experience for this workshop, but hand sewing and embroidering skills are needed. This workshop is more suitable for people who are experienced sewers.
The full price is £370 ( Approx. 433 Euros) for the workshop. In the price all the materials refreshments and lunches on both days are included. After the workshop you will receive a tutorial and pattern for the doll we have made. The balance is payable at the workshop. With the £100 ( Approx. 117 Euros) deposit you secure your space.
The deposit is unrefundable unless I can fill your space.
Once you have payed the deposit I will get in touch with details and skin colour and hair colour options.
On both days (20-21st April ) it will be from 9 am till 7 pm on Saturday, and 9am till 6pm on Sunday. I will try to make sure that you will be going home with a ready Waldorf doll.
All of the sewing work in the two days will be hand-stitching. We will not use sewing machines. I will be presewing the body of the dolls with a sewing machine.
We will not have time to make a dress for the doll, but there will be dresses , knitted clothes and leather booties available to purchase and you will be provided with patterns for making some outfits for your doll in advance if you wish to do so.
To sum it up:
This doll making workshop will cover, making and shaping the head of a traditional Waldorf doll. We also will be using needle felting technic to add to the features to make your doll look super cute. We will be stuffing the limbs using rolling technic, stitching the body together, embroidering the eyes and the mouth of your doll. You can add ears to your doll, and little knees and buttocks, and belly button.
The class will be small in order to give more teaching time and support to participants.
