Doll Making for Children


Textile arts are an ancient form of creative expression. In this playful workshop we will each create a simple handmade doll using textiles. Each doll will be infused with the personality of the maker, and can be made to honour ancestors and loved ones, celebrate our own strengths and personality, show parts of ourselves that we want to bring into the world, or make physical our wishes for the future. Dolls made in this workshop can be quirky, funny, stylish, simple, complex, colourful, striking and unique, just like we are.
This is a great workshop for those who love fabric and yarn. No special skills (such as sewing or crochet) are required. If participants have a special bead, piece of yarn, or scrap of fabric they would like to use in their creation they are welcome to bring it along – but this is completely optional as all materials will be provided.
This workshop is open to adults, as well as children over 7 who are accompanied by a participating parent or guardian. This is a great opportunity to do something fun with your child and learn a new skill together.
(Unfortunately unaccompanied children are not able to attend).
An afternoon of play – no homework, no prep, just come along and enjoy.

What will children learn:
- Learn about the history of doll making around the world from varied materials
- Gain confidence and skills in creating a personalised textile doll
- (If new to sewing) participants will gain experience in simple hand sewing
- Learn ways to create a range of clothes for their dolls, even if they can’t sew.
