September 20th - October 4th 2019

 
 

In this two week class we will be exploring the world of faeries. We'll be hand sewing faeries from natural fibres, learning how to dye locks for hair with a variety of natural dyes, embroider faces, and create clothing using salvaged antique fabrics and wool felt.

Materials are not included in the cost of the course. A full resource list for materials will be emailed to you upon registration. Where available resources are listed for Canada, the US, and the UK. Kits will also be available for purchase.

This is a beginner level class, but previous hand sewing experience is an asset.

New lessons will be available every Friday, with about 3-5 hours of student time recommended each week. You can work through the modules at your own pace as you have permanent access to the online classroom. I am available throughout the five weeks to answer any questions. We will meet weekly in an online webinar to discuss progress and share work.

Please read through the FAQ if you have any questions, or contact me directly.

**Please be aware that the faeries I will be teaching you to make are my aesthetic and one that I have spent years developing. So, you may not use this doll pattern to sell from commercially. Doll making is a wonderful art form and this workshop is all about building skills and learning techniques that are versatile and can be applied in all sorts of ways in your own doll making journey!
