We are very excited that exquisite doll designer and maker Katy Livings will be coming to Needle & Thread in September for an Introduction to Doll Making workshop!
Katy creates treasured textile dolls and rabbits with the finest of details that are destined to become family heirlooms, with so much attention to detail and incorporating so many different craft techniques.
Inspired by vintage books and toy making patterns, her own favourite childhood toy bunny and illustrations by her favourite artists, Katy works in her studio at the bottom of her garden to create these truly special pieces.
During her workshop day with us Katy will work with you to construct your own doll or rabbit using a variety of pretty fabrics and trims. You will create a doll/rabbit with button-jointed arms, detachable skirt and spend time making accessories such as capes and little punched leather bags or crowns. Katy will show you hand-embroidery techniques for face details to create an heirloom of your own!
Saturday 30th September 10am to 4pm at the Needle & Thread Studio
