Doll-Making Class For Ages 11 and up!


Learn the art of doll making by hand, from scratch ~ all hand sewing.
Create a special, one-of-a-kind, custom made keepsake doll in your own likeness including hair color, eye color, body type, skin color, etc. or the likeness of a special person in your life while learning life-long skills.

This ten-week class is held in the comfort of the instructor's home in Narberth, PA. The completed doll measures between 14-16 inches and is complete with facial features and hair. The class is for boys and girls and parents are welcome to take the class also. All materials are supplied.

This is a challenging project and requires the commitment to the entire session for completion. There is a tremendous sense of "Wow, I did it!" at the completion of this project.

A second session will be held in the spring to make hand-sewn clothing for the doll. The final product will be much like the dolls sold by Magic Cabin. The instructor is a homeschooling parent who is a professional artist and handwork teacher.

$100 for the entire ten weeks,
includes supplies
