Only a day to go before our Open Studio Saturday (between 2 and 4) same on Sunday, and the dolls on the “finishing table” (to the right) are almost as excited as me!. Thank you so much to those folk who have let me know they are coming – I am so looking forward to seeing you all. This is the first Open Studio since before the Covid Lockdowns. That does not mean that Covid is gone, it does mean that we are all immunised, and we may get covid, but it will be less severe (as long as you are taking care of your immunity with a reasonable diet and exercise). That being said, if you have the sniffles, if you have any symptoms, please make a date with me to come to the studio at another time – there is no urgency – I am going nowhere, I will wait for you.
At the Open Day I will have the dolls of course, fabulous golden pendulums, and paintings
I make and mend dolls for children and people in crisis. There are a number of ways you can work with me in this.
*Buy a doll and leave it with me and I will donate it to a child or an adult who needs a “compassionate companion”.
*Make a donation to my doll making efforts.
*Source and donate hand made (not manufactured) dolls which need TLC. I will clean and refurbish them and hand them on.
*OR BUY A BABY TO TAKE HOME AND LOVE.
The dolls I actually make, even the teeny weeny ones, will I hope, be heirlooms. Manufactured dolls contain the most terrible rubbish, even ground up gravel which turns into dust (your children can suck and breathe in this dust). Some contain sharp wires and armatures, terrible screws and fittings to hold in the eyes, and large plastic boxes containing batteries! How these help a child love and cuddle a doll I don’t know, how they get past health inspections I don’t know, and why we buy them for children is also a mystery to me!
I do make my own dolls, from second hand refurbished, pre-loved material…. but they do take quite a long time as most of the work is hand-work. The machine only used for the major seams. I hand paint most of the faces.
Please pop in. I will have champers as usual, and nibbles. You will be able to see the finished dolls, and perhaps “like” a doll which is not quite finished yet. I can post it to you or you could collect later. LAY BYS ACCEPTED.
