Doll Making Workshops in London
Join one of my worshops and create a handmade doll for yourself or a child. You will be making a Waldorf doll in a choice of patterns and skin colours, using natural materials including organic stuffing wool. We will shape the head with tubular bandage and binding string, sew on the face fabric with no wrinkles, embroider the simple features and sew the hair into a crocheted cap.
All levels are welcome, from beginner to experienced doll makers. We will be a small group and you will be well supported. Examples of dolls made at other workshops are below.
Handwork slows you down and brings you into the moment, allowing the body and the intellect to work together.

The workshop was invaluable for all their attention and the benefit of their expertise and enabled me to make a doll that I know my daughter will love and cherish. The atmosphere was lovely and supportive and the two days very enjoyable.
The workshop was really inspiring and the instructions and clear step by step explanations. I can’t wait to start a new doll for testing my memory and specially your experienced tips!!. You and Sevim were very tuned together and warm towards all of us and the structure and the progress of the two sessions were in a very pleasant pace.
Thank you once again for your guidance during the wonderful workshop – I really enjoyed it. Joe (my son) has been a hard task master but his sky fairy is now complete and to his satisfaction!
