The workshop will be held in a beautiful old east coast house, above the lovely Biscuit Eater cafe (you'll have a chance to soak in some of its character during our afternoon tea break on Sunday!). It's located right in the centre of Mahone Bay, easily accessible from Lunenburg & Bridgewater. Please Contact me if you would like additional travel or accommodation information.
What: You will be making a 5-6 inch natural fibre art doll.
For Who: This workshop is for those who have prior hand-sewing experience. It is not a Beginner course and requires comfort with very tiny hand-stitches.
Cost: $350 ($448 CAD)
• All tools and materials.
• Lunch on Saturday & Sunday.
• Evening meal on Saturday.
• Tea & snacks.
• An in-depth PDF tutorial covering everything I will be teaching in class.
This is a 3-day intensive workshop.
The first day will be introductions, making your doll's wire armature, needle felting the head, and familiarizing yourself with the stitches you'll be using.
The second day you will be sewing your doll, learning techniques for shaping & embroidering a face, making feet and hands, and attaching wool locks for hair.
The third day you will be hand sewing clothing from antique and fabrics and wool felt & creating the wings.
I will have a needle felted toadstool for your faerie to sit on. We will spend the end of the afternoon on Sunday creating felted moss & flowers to decorate the base of the toadstool.
This is a small workshop, with only 8 spaces available, so I will have ample time to work with everyone one on one.
***Please be aware that you are not allowed to use this doll pattern to sell from. Doll making is a wonderful art form and this workshop is all about building skills and learning techniques to help you discover your own creative style. The techniques you will be learning are versatile and can be applied in all sorts of ways!
Cancellation Policy: Due to logistics and up-front costs, the workshop is 100% non-refundable unless your place can be filled by someone else.
