An Introduction To Doll Making with Katy Livings
We are sooo delighted to welcome Katy Livings, textile designer and maker of exquisite heirloom dolls to Needle & Thread for this special workshop, An Introduction to Doll Making!
Katy will work with you to construct your own doll or rabbit using a variety of pretty fabrics and trims. You will create a doll/rabbit with button-jointed arms, detachable skirt and spend time making accessories such as capes and little punched leather bags or crowns. Katy will show you hand-embroidery techniques for face details to create an heirloom of your own.
All fabrics and toy stuffing will be provided, but do bring along any cherished fabrics of your own should you wish to incorporate them.
A special workshop not to be missed!
Saturday 30th September 10am to 4pm SOLD OUT please email me to put your name on the waiting list
Sunday 1st October 10am to 4pm SOLD OUT please email me to put your name on the waiting list
£75 including all materials, equipment, mid morning cake (of course) and a healthy lunch!
(Please note due to time restraints your rabbit or doll will feature a detachable skirt and cape an/or other accessories rather than a full dress as these take rather longer to make than the time available on the workshop, although you can go on to make her a whole new wardrobe at home!).
