Testimonials Just finished an online class with Judith Prior for her 14" Ambrose, Dragon. I learned some new techniques and had a great time "talking" to everyone who was taking the class. Judith is a great teacher and NEVER to busy to answer questions. I highly recommend her classes. Hugs, Betty in Mexico

 I found Darius the most enjoyable & the easiest dragon I've made.  Also as he is a class the instructions are very thorough and easy to follow.  I started making him a girlfriend today! Thanks Judith!  I LOVE him & I'm so proud of him; I'm definitely going to make another one I've got a nice collection of golden fabrics lined up for ?her  Debbie Allen UK.

Each student will be supplied a kit with everything needed to make the doll, except the filling and the costume. Patterns will be supplied and clothing may be prepared in advance or made in class. I am looking forward to seeing lots and lots of little "Elwyn's" proudly produced by you and your doll club members.

Bookings are now available - Please email me for details of costs, preparations, booking dates etc.
Suitable for all skill levels in a two day workshop - Techniques taught will include:
Face painting

Body and face sculpting

Making exceptionally lifelike hands

Working with acrylic gel medium

Simple but very effective beading techniques

Plus Judith's new and innovative head technique -a new concept that works really well and gives consistency in the facial features
