Have you ever dreamed of making your own, one of a kind, special doll? Then keep reading, because I created the perfect workshop, just for you.

Besides from painting, doll making has always been a lifelong passion of mine. When I was little I used to cut the models from my grandmother’s JC Penney Catalog and pretended they came to life as something I could touch and hold, not just look at.

Making a doll fulfilled that desire, creating something out of nothing brings joy to my heart like nothing else. It’s a very different feeling from painting, because my idea gets to be something much more tangible and real than just an image you look and fall in love with. You can touch it, play with it and love it. I love that feeling, and I want to share how I feel with you.

Join me in this amazing workshop as I guide you through the process I go trough when I sit down on my studio to create a doll. From tracing the pattern into the fabric to the final embellishing touches, you will learn every step I take in comprehensive and detailed videos about the magic of dollmaking.

You will learn to use an alchemy of mixed media techniques to sew, paint, dress up and embellish your creations, and by the end of the workshop you will be able to create your own beautiful one-of-a-kind doll.

Learn with me the magic and power to transform raw materials like fabric, threads and paints into a beautiful hand painted doll, and then make her into anything you want her to be. To each doll, give it her own story.
