This class is great for crafters of all skill levels, from children (assisted by adults of course) to working professionals. You will learn to design, construct and sew your plush from scratch.

Plush & Puppet Maker

I am a plush and puppet maker living in Brooklyn with two beautiful cats. I have a background in filmmaking and have been working in the film industry for the past five years in various capacities while learning the craft of puppet making from wonderful companies such as Basil Twist, The Puppet Kitchen and the Jim Henson Company. 

I have a great love of doing things by hand and creating from scratch. I appreciate good craftsmanship and attention to detail. I find tedious tasks to be very soothing and once created a costume containing thousands of yarn strands which I single handedly attached to the piece over the course of six months. 

I own a small business called Killin' Me Softly where I create custom plushes of my favorite villains. The idea for my company stems from my love of horror movies and the macabre - however I also have a soft spot for Disney and all things magical.
