Tuesday 27 October / 11.30am or 2pm
Who would like a party dress, skater skirt or faux-fur jacket to complete a stylish winter look?
Join the authors of I Can Make Dolls’ Clothes to learn how to follow patterns to make fashion-forward clothes and accessories for your favourite doll.
Suitable for children aged 7+ the workshop follows a simple, quick and fun approach with extremely chic results. Participants will learn the basics of sewing, including how to thread a needle, do a running stitch and sew on poppers and buttons. The workshop will also discuss how to choose fabrics, and how to mix-and-match clothes and patterns for effect.
Bring a favourite doll and camera to create inspirational photographs of your model showing off the finished look.
The workshop is based on the new book by Louise Scott-Smith and Georgia Vaux, I Can Make Dolls Clothes (Thames and Hudson £9.95), which includes actual-size patterns for nine garments for a standard 30 cm (12 in) plastic doll along with super-clear instructions and illustrations of each step.
Louise Scott-Smith is a childrenswear designer and former Head of Children’s Wear Design at Liberty of London and at Caramel Baby & Child.
Georgia Vaux is a graphic designer, book designer and art director
Price: £15 including materials and exhibition entry.
Participants should bring their own 12″ doll to the workshop.
