Treasure Doll-Making Workshop
Arts & DIY
We're thrilled to have Kaisa Stenberg teach this dollmaking class at Art&Craft. She is a thoughtful crafter and is excited to share her passion with you.
During this class, you get to design and make your own one-of-a-kind doll. This workshop begins with an imaginative mindfulness exercise. Next you dream up your unique doll friend into being! Perhaps you want to make a self-portrait doll, or a doll that resembles someone you love. Or one straight out of your imagination!
First, learn to draw a pattern for your doll and be guided step-by-step to create your quirky little friend. The possibilities are endless. You will get to choose the clothing from countless fabrics, create the kind of hair you're imagining, and if you'd like, a hat, too! Then to finish, you sew on your own embroidered facial features.
At the end of the class, you get to take home a finished product that will be a lovely keepsake doll to treasure over the years, or a unique gift to give to someone special.
This class is open to those who consider themselves an advanced beginner on the sewing machine.
Ages 8 and up are invited to attend. We request that both guardian/parent and child each purchase a ticket to register.
There are six spots available. Learn more about Kaisa's work at @kutsucompanions on Instagram.
Investment includes instruction, all materials, use of sewing machines, thread, and cutting toolsCancellation Policy
I have a mission! I want to bring people together to create, and grow a collective of curious creatives and artists in arms who wish to share their passion for making and hand crafting beautiful things for the pure joy of it.
Last December, a dream came true for me. I now have a space to call home for all of my passions. It's a boutique fabric nook and makerspace in RiNo, where I host all my classes and sell amazing modern fabric. Come see us at 3327 Brighton Blvd. Denver, CO 80216 in the Converge Building. Our website is www.artandcraftco.com.
As far as my creativity philosophy goes, I believe all art comes from the soul, the architect, and the hands and eyes are the builders for those inspired ideas. When we make I get lost in the process and drop all judgements and lock away the inner critic, allowing myself to simply play. Altogether, I am a fabric, quilt, music, bead and jewelry enthusiast, but I want to gather makers of all arts to inspire, support each other, and share. I'd love to build a creative community, and bring together others who have a passion for making things. I also sing, play a few instruments, and write inspiring songs with my darling songstress sisters in our band Starling. I hope to join forces in creative bliss.
