I took all my gear - a better way of carrying it rather than my usual bucket! It rolls up nice and small! Not exactly elegant, but it does the job!
Sheryl thoughtfully had body parts made up to show how it is constructed.
All the kits laid out and more fabric, plus dyed mohair that Sheryl had wefted ready for use!
Everyone getting down to painting the faces!
Someone is excited to learn how to fix mistakes and also to make an open mouth!
Getting it all together! this delightful lady gave us chocolate and made the most delicious lemon cakes! We were spoiled and we so appreciated it!
A close up of Sheryl's doll. This is the same doll made in many different ways! Look at the shoes she made too!
Working on the faces and getting the bodies sewn up!
A line-up of all the heads! Fascinating that it's the same head made in twelve different ways! Lots of learning here. They were shown how potentially disastrous faces could be changed to look more like it, and how to undo and start again with more pleasing results. These ladies were pleased to be able to learn different techniques from both of us and what other tools could do the job better and faster. It was so worthwhile for us all! They have invited me back next year, so that's a good sign!
