Fabric Doll Creation and Doll Clothes
Instructor: Hilda Eiber

Create your own fabric doll.  Try your hand at sewing and embroidery and learn the basics to create your own fabric doll.   On the first day,  participants will learn how to cut and sew the doll, and in the second class, the doll’s clothes will be created.   The class is taught by professional artist, Hilda Eiber, who has taught several doll making courses, including at the Washington County Museum in Hagerstown.   This is a hands -on  course to learn how to create a cloth  doll and clothing.  This is a hand sewing course and will improve sewing and embroidery stitches too.   This is a great class for Mom’s and grandmothers who like to make a holiday gift for their children or  grandchildren,   or encourage creativity and new skills, for a  teen working on their basic sewing skills.   The course is open for students 12 years to adults.

Hilda Eiber is an artist in the complete sense of the word.  She is an accomplished ceramic artist and professional potter, as well as a painter.   She loves to work in fabrics as well, and has offered this doll making course to several sold out classes in Hagerstown.   We are excited to be able to offer this course in Martinsburg.
