plus a dinner together in a restaurant.


During the classes you will make one sitting or standing doll,
or two busts, please see some examples on this page.

The busts on this page are between 15cm and 20 cm high,
from head to bottom of the chest.
Standing on the colomn they are between 30 and 40 cm high.

The complete doll is approximately 40 to 50 cm high (16-18 inches)
with a fabric body, sculpted head, arms and feet of
my new Premix Clay!

A lot of attention is given to sculpting a well proportioned
and balanced face, hands and feet.
Many tips will be given concerning anatomy, proportions,
balance and movement.
You will learn many sculpting details, techniques and tricks.

The course includes everything:
sculpting, sanding, painting the skin color,
painting the facial details, varnishing, making and gluing a wig,
assistance in making the clothes.

The course is included all doll making materials
such as clay, paint, eyes, eyelashes, hair, the use of
all doll making supplies such as brushes, pencils, tools etc.
Not included is the fabric body and materials for the clothes.

Before the workshop starts, you have to prepare the fabric body, for which you will receive patterns and a complete guide.
For the busts no preparing is needed.

Please contact me about these wonderful holiday workshops.

I can place only 6 persons per course, so a lot of attention can be given.
