NEC, Birmingham

60-minutes workshop – cost £17.00

Join Michelle Goodfield from Thimble Wood to create a charming yarn flower fairy doll. You will learn the very simple process of creating a basic doll from yarn using a wooden bead for a head. Then learn how to modernise this traditional crafty make by dressing your doll with a stitched felt Buttercup outfit including a pretty petaled overskirt, wings, hat and boots.
You will be provided with all the materials to make your doll and will aim to complete the main doll and dress in the session, with full directions given for you to finish off the wings, hat and boots at home.
 
Advisory Note:
Suitable for ages 14 and over, all abilities welcome. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.

Meet the Tutor
Michelle Goodfield
A lifelong crafter, Michelle has been lucky enough to work in the craft industry for 30 years, initially designing rubber stamps, then writing articles on card making. This led to a career in craft publishing, writing 12 craft books and hundreds of magazine articles. It was always Michelle’s dream to start her own business and so Thimble Wood was born four years ago where Michelle gets to design the things that she likes to make; small projects, something a bit different, sometimes quirky, often cute (even though they weren’t really intend to be) and always great fun to make. Michelle loves to make up her own techniques and find the easiest way to do things!
