Sunday 16 May 18.00-21.00 Part 2
14 Students maximum

Cinderella is up early in the morning to do the fires, and always on her knees, cleaning the floors. She is a young girl who dreams about having a beautiful dress one day, like the ones her mistress has. As long as she keeps dreaming..

This class will consist of 2 three hour sessions on two different evenings. You will learn how to put on leather boots, underwear, a dress and apron. We will wig the doll and put on a mob cap, and decorations like collar, and bows. We will finish with positioning her on her knees and giving her a somewhat grubby look with the help of a little paint.

A “Workshop Pack” will be sent to participants prior to the class containing a doll made up ready for dressing & all the prepared material for sewing, dressing and decorating the doll.

Students will need to have the following:

A sharp pair of scissors . White fabric glue (Tacky Glue) . A medium sized paint brush . Two shades of dark brown paint (either acrylic or watercolour. If you have neither of these you can use a tea bag)
