Doll Making Workshops in London and Online

Morning or evening short courses on how to make a Waldorf style doll in one of two different shapes.

I encourage you to enjoy the creative journey and celebrate the perfectly imperfect handmade.

I also offer one to one doll making tutorial sessions.

Examples of dolls made at my workshops are shown here, made mostly by complete beginner doll makers.

Upcoming Workshops

Handwork slows you down and brings you into the here and now, allowing your body and intellect to work together.

You will be making a Waldorf doll in your choice of patterns and skin colours, using natural materials including organic stuffing wool. We will shape the head with tubular bandage and binding string, embroider the simple features and sew the hair into a crocheted cap.

All levels are welcome, from beginner to experienced. We will be a small, well supported group. Use of a sewing machine is optional.


Five Thursday evenings in September

Online course with a little homework in between and whatsapp support throughout.

Some comments from participants

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.

Donna

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.

Mita

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!
