Cloth Dollmaking for Everyone! Online Class by Judi Ward
The class for beginners as well as the more advanced dollmakers.
This class will begin with a two piece pancake doll, and progress through 3 more dolls, getting more and more advanced each time. You will be provided with complete Example Dollspatterns for all dolls, and patterns for a multi piece, mix and match wardrobe of dress, petticoat, skirt, apron, pinafore, gown that is also a blouse and slip, pantaloons, vest, hat, shoes, sandals and stockings.
The doll variations will include 4 hands. 4 feet, including high heel feet. 4 bodies, including one with a bust. 4 heads, including a pretty profile face with light sculpting. Variations for all will be taught, including invisible jointing, feature placement for changing your dolls age, even a Raggedy adaptation.
Learn all the techniques needed to make beautiful, quality cloth dolls, whether they are simple or detailed.
We will cover sewing, turning and stuffing detailed fingers. Articulating fingers and even arms and legs. We will cover stuffing extensively! We will cover basic hairstyling, face placement, and basic painting and shading of the features. (NOTE: For extensive painting and hairstyling classes, check out the other classes at Crafty College.)
Also please note that the 2 heads without bodies in the picture are just showing 2 face and head variations.
This class will answer almost every question you have about making cloth dolls, but will not teach nylon stocking needlesculpting like Lisa Lichtenfels dolls, nor face mask dolls.
Join us for this definitive class de-mystifying cloth dollmaking. This class is a bargain for just the patterns!
