Online Classes

Following is the tentative schedule of all my future online doll classes:

November | Making a Baby Doll (NEW class) - Doll will be weighted with glass beads for a very comforting and realistic feel; baby will have a needle-felted face with many body details. I will be able to direct you to a page with more info mid October. Class is imparted completely with step-by-step videos that contain many annotations, so you can make progress at home; you will be gently and expertly guided in this wool baby creation and receive weekly support via a virtual classroom too. Approximate price for this class will be $485 USD but it has not been finalized yet. Class will last three weeks, registration will begin at the end of October.

Early 2020 | Needle Felting a Doll’s Face in Wool (NEW class) - An extremely thorough class that will teach you how to firmly needle felt a doll’s face, so that it retains its shape over many years, as well as creating depth and many detailed features. The class will teach you how to create a beautiful head shape without using stockinette to bind the head, and how to sculpt a realistic young child’s face. You will also learn how to properly drape skin fabric over the face in order to bring to life all the wool sculpting you did. This class will not cover body pattern or eye embroidery, but I will give you guidance regarding which body proportions will suit this doll’s head size and appearance. Class will last 3 weeks. Tentative time of arrival: early 2020.

March/April 2020 | Making a Doll Fairy (Spring Edition) - Beginner to Intermediate class that teaches you how to create a doll fairy. You can read more about the class over here. This class will be open for registration in March and lasts three weeks.

If you are interested in any of my online doll classes, please contact me by clicking on the button at the bottom of this page. Spots in my online classes are limited, as I like to work with a small group of students so I can give detailed attention to each one. All my online classes are led my me, they are only available during the month they are being taught and are not self-led at the moment. The educational material and videos are always accessible to you once the class ends.
