I offer many different classes & workshops from beginning to advanced. Advanced classes & patterns usually involve applying cloth over sculpted paperclay. Nearly all of my patterns include instructions for making a wire armature, articulated wire & soft sculpted hands. advanced jointing techniques, coloring options, and wigging. Included in each workbook are detailed instructions for every step of the dolls construction, as well as diagrams, and or photos for each step. I produce all of my advanced patterns in a spiral bound workbook form. I also provide complete directions for the construction of the dolls costume, and the display base. My goal is to provide enough information, so that even if a person has never made a cloth doll before they will be able to complete one with ease.
I also travel to teach, and my rates for teaching vary per class. The general rates are between $150.00, and $200.00 for full day instruction, plus traveling expenses & $100.00 per half day instruction. I do not have a minimum, or maximum student number per class. I only require there is sufficient room for each student to work comfortably. I offer both half day classes (four hours), and full day (eight hours). I also offer two day and three classes/workshops for the more advanced patterns. The more advanced patterns, and classes/workshops include the cloth over paperclay dolls with complex armatures.
