11-12 June & 13-14 June
Small doll with sculpted face
Number of sessions: 4 (plus extra 1-2 hours after first day evening session if needed)
Number of participants: 8
Price: 225 EUR (all materials included)
Expectations from participants: basic sewing skills; needed tools: scissors, sewing and felting needles, crochet hook, pliers or stick for stuffing (these who can't bring needles and scissors because they will travel by plain please contact earlier so we can provide it on site).
Description: small dolls are very handy for children to play with but quite difficult to make. Tiny details need extra care and effort. During workshop participants will make a doll 30 cm (12 inch) high with sculpted face and natural goat hair. It can be girl or a boy, in any available skin tone and hair style you want. To finish all work during four sessions basic head will be prepared earlier by a tutor as well as stitched body (participants get a pattern for further use). Throughout the course students will learn how to sculpt small face, cover it with fabric, make a wig, do embroidered eyes, stuffing small limbs, attach hands and finally combining all parts into a doll. Patterns for basic garments are included in workshop's materials but there will be an opportunity to buy some clothes for an extra charge to dress the newly created doll. Feel invited to join me in a doll making adventure!
