A 66 page in depth doll making tutorial, based on the creation of my little dolls known as the Stolen Ones, who are the charges of the Ghastly Governess with whom they reside under the roots of the Old Willow tree.
Between 2010 and 2017 I created the Stolen Ones using a technique of air drying clay and needle felting. A different muse calls now and so I decided to share a process that I have loved dearly, in the hope that it may inspire others on their creative journeys and I have priced the tutorial low in order to make it accessible to all.
This tutorial is full of photographs to guide you and also inspire your imagination, it will teach you how to create 3 dolls, the first is the basic form for all three and a simple way to begin your journey into doll making after which I show you how to sculpt dolls with Ram horns, antlers and tiny hooves and how to paint and costume them.
The Stolen Ones will be there with you for the journey to give encouragement and support, but you will need to listen carefully for their whispers....
For every tutorial purchased £2 will be donated to Greyhound, Lurcher and Galgo rescue centres in the UK, Ireland and Spain.

This is a great tutorial, especially the directions on how to make horns if you like to make dolls with horns/antlers this is a great resource.
