Folk Art Dolls for Grown Ups
My dolls and doll making interests have evolved over the last twenty five years into folk dolls for grown ups. Each one is a labour of love and each one has her own personality. I make one at a time and lavish attention to get my details right. I tried making them in batches but they lost their heart so now each is made individually from start to finish. I rarely repeat combinations, each doll being unique and a one of a kind. Folk Art Dolls for Grown Ups.
Each doll has a crystal to her heart and herbs in her stuffing for a gentle scent. The can be thought of as prim dolls or traditional rag dolls with a twist.
I studied design at university but having done lots and lots of short courses in textiles I had a wonderful confidence boost with a City and Guils certificate and diploma in Stitched Textiles with Dr Judith Peacock at Lancaster, the old City and Guilds Part 1 and 2. The best four years ever, I learned so much from Judith and my fellow stitchers. I love hand work and have a special interest in counted thread work, developing my own style over the last ten years. I will be offering a very limited number of commission slots each month, so if you want something individual keep an eye out for dates.
