Here I am all businesslike with tools in hand - that's Joy and Barbara in the background diligently working away!
Teaching the finer points about stuffing with Joyce!
Getting intently involved now........
At last - a bevy of smiling beauties - most are hairless - not you Joyce - and some can even stand, considering I forgot to bring wire for their armatures! Still, this was always more about learning how to needle-sculpt and I think that was very successful!
You'll notice the bodies are all different? That's due to different fabrics used and stuffing methods.
I think I have caused a lot of people to become addicted to cloth doll-making and I'm not even sorry!
I had such a great time sharing my passion and cloth doll artistry with people who certainly seemed to appreciate learning how to do it. Can't wait to go back to Timaru!
