About This Class

Are you a brand-new doll or teddy toys maker? Or are you going to make your first doll right away? I bet you want to have all your tools as cheap as possible, and there's a lot of ways to get everything you need and of acceptable quality for low price and even for free!

You'll learn:

  • what tools do you need to work with fabrics (mohair, plush, etc.), stuffing, joints and different types of clay, which are the most common materials for dollmaking
  • how can you substitute pricey professional tools with commonplace analogs
  • how to find most of your tools at home and where to buy those that aren't common
  • how to craft tools like awl by yourself

Advanced doll and toy makers probably won't find anything useful in this short course and I'm feeling a little bit sorry about that.

Crafty Dwarf - toy maker and tankard clinker

Hi! I'm a self-taught artist, toy maker and DIY enthusiast from Russia.

My passion is for craft. I can craft almost anything almost anywhere, and I spent my free time talking about craft.

I am a teddy maker for 4 year, polymer clay bender for 3 years, origami folder for over 25 years and I also like making paper and cardboard rockets. I'm a full time artist and self-employed seller of my art so there'll be a lot of my classes on Skillshare soon. Stay tuned please!
