Learn about dollmaking with Fabs from Fig and Me. Workshops for 2018.

 
 

2019 is going to be exciting!

Following are the places and dates, as well as some of the workshops I have scheduled for the coming year. Any questions feel free to ask.

 

Portland, Oregon

I will be attending the magical doll convention Doll Folk for its inaugural year. I have come up with three different workshops to suit different levels of doll making. Please check them out and contact me should you have any questions.

Advanced Doll Making Workshop for a 12" Art Doll
February 7-8, 2019
Price $525 USD
During 2019 I will be teaching a different doll workshop than my 15" doll taught during 2018. This doll will have the following qualities: needle-felted face with a wired neck for poseability, advanced doll body construction, 6-year old body proportions; we will be using a pre-made doll wig, sculpting the torso with needle felting techniques, and sculpting knees, elbows and a sweet bum. The size of the finished doll will be 11”/12” in height. Price includes all materials to create the doll but you will have to come with a few tools. Workshop runs from 9 AM to 7 PM on both days, with a one-hour break for lunch (we can all order food in from near restaurants or from the hotel). Food is not included in the price of the workshop.
Registration for this workshop will open in NOVEMBER, VERY limited space available. 


Mastering the Rolling Wool Method
February 9, 2019
Price $225 USD
A wonderful technique that helps you achieve ultra firm and smooth limbs when stuffing dolls and toys. Price includes wool to practice and I will bring doll pattern pieces to stuff, you are welcomed to bring your own if you want me to teach you to stuff your own pattern. Wool wands will be provided to learn this technique but are not included in the price of the workshop. I will have a few for sale should you want to take one home with you. Workshop runs from 9 AM to 12 PM on Saturday.
Registration will open in NOVEMBER, limited space available.


Needle-felting a Doll's Face in Wool
February 9, 2019
Price $385 USD
You will learn to sculpt facial features with the wonders of wool fibers and special barbed needles. This is an Advanced Doll Making workshop and it would be very helpful if you already know a little bit of needle-felting or have sculpted doll faces with needle and string. This is an ideal workshop if you want to learn advanced doll making techniques to add more depth and expression to your doll creations. Price of the workshop includes all materials needed. We will be sculpting a doll's head and face plus covering it in fabric. The eye embroidery, body pattern and any other techniques will not be covered. Workshop will run on Saturday from 2 PM to 8 PM. 
Registration will open in NOVEMBER, limited space available.


The following places are being considered, but I still don’t have definite dates to give you:
Toronto, Ontario, Canada - Late Spring 2019
Newton-Abbot, Devon, UK - Early Summer 2019


If you are interested in attending any of these workshops, I am keeping a handy "waiting list" and the people in such list will be emailed as soon as I open registration. Please get in touch with me regarding the workshop that best suits your location.
