About the Course

This is a two day course, 10am - 5pm both days.

On this course you will create a handmade waldorf doll in a choice of patterns and skin colours, using all natural materials including organic stuffing wool. We will shape the head with tubular bandage and binding string, sew on the face fabric with no wrinkles, embroider the simple features and sew the hair into a crocheted cap.

You will be well supported in a small group led by an experienced doll maker and teacher of over 30 similar workshops. Beginners are welcome.

Really excellent course over 2 days, full on and exhausting but the standard of teaching from Mopsa was impressive, she was generous in sharing her expertise, knowledge and experience to ensure we ended up with dolls that were to a professional standard, amazing and gorgeous. It's also fab to spend the day with lovely women, chatting and sewing with a lovely atmosphere. Such an enjoyable 2 days, great value for money and I am looking forward to knitting a jumper in May. Thanks Mopsa.

Mopsa was wonderful, so helpful and knowledgeable on the making of the dolls, very patient with all of us ladies asking her questions at the same time. I had a fabulous time, met five other lovely ladies making a doll. All of our dolls are excellent thanks to us and Mopsa. The course, I feel, is very reasonably priced, worth every penny.
Here's to my next doll.

The course was great and I love my doll (she exceeded my expectations). My daughter absolutely loves her too even though she's not a 'dolly' sort of girl.
Mopsa is an excellent and very patient teacher and loves what she does.

I can highly recommend.

I had a fabulous time on this course. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was enjoyable and fun. I am so pleased with my doll. Mospa, who is the tutor is great at what she does. She is funny, and has the patience of a saint.

Money well spent.
