1. Children's doll painting workshop
In 2023, to encourage our budding young artists, the South Australian Doll Guild committee has decided to run a beginner's doll painting workshop for children aged 10 to 16. We have spaces for 10 children.
The class will be run by several of our committee members at Fullarton Park Community Centre, 411 Fullarton Road, Fullarton.
The painting part of the course will be on Tuesday 3/10/2023 from 9:30 am until 4:00 pm approximately. The doll will be assembled on Wednesday 4/10/2023, starting at 9:30 am (note, these dates are in the school holidays).
The cost will be $120. Everything you need to make your baby will be supplied and all participants will take home a completed bald baby plus some little surprises. We will be using Ultimate Fusion air-dry paints.
The kit we will be using is sleeping “Ella” (Bountiful Babies), with full limbs and a cloth body.
Please note, there is no catering - participants will need to bring their own lunch, snacks and drinks.
2. Doll wig making class with Jodie Lombardo
Spend a few hours with Jodie learning the art of wig making. You will learn how to create a custom wig on a baby of your choice. Mohair is not included in the price but will be available to purchase on the day. You can choose a faux mohair or real mohair - or both.
Time: Thursday 5th October 2023, 10:00am - 2:00pm
Location: Fullarton Park Community Centre, 411 Fullarton Road Fullarton SA 5063
