***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 (which is the most rewarding part of the journey). The techniques you will be learning are versatile and can be applied in all sorts of ways!
This is a 3-day intensive workshop. The first day will be introductions, making your doll armature, getting familiar with the stitches you will use, and starting to sew. The second day you will be completing your doll and working on clothing. This is a full day of hand sewing, so it's important that you are comfortable in this medium (there may be some homework for those who want to take home a finished & dressed doll!). The third day you will be needle felting a toadstool on a felted moss base, for your faerie to ride on or sit beside.
Cancellation Policy: Due to logistics and up-front costs, the workshop is 100% non-refundable unless your place can be filled by someone else.
