In Person Classes

In Person Classes

in person classes

I am primarily a maker, but from time to time I do enjoy teaching. I used to run a large number of classes, both from my studios and at other locations such as the Brookfield Craft Center, Old Sturbridge Village, plus a number of Historical Societies and Museums.

In recent years I haven’t had much time available to teach, so I don’t have any classes scheduled for the foreseeable future. Having more orders than I can keep up with is a wonderful problem to have! For now I am only teaching a limited number of subjects as Classes by Mail, because I can fit in online student support at odd times, early in the morning and late at night. I’m leaving my class information here as a place holder. If and when my work load slows down, I’ll begin scheduling classes again at my studios.

❤ At the current time I am not accepting orders in several categories, including custom made dolls. Certain other items are only going to be available occasionally during a few of my Pop-Up Shops. Once I manage to work through my backlog, I’ll start taking orders again ❤ If you have a particular doll or other item that you would purchase if it were available, please leave a reply. I’ll take “wishes” into consideration when choosing which categories to open up first, when designing new items, and when making dolls for “open shopping” when I post newly made dolls for sale on

If you’d like to be notified when my Pop-Up Shops occur please sign-up for my newsletter. You may also choose to be included on my “New Dolls” email list, which will let you know when I have newly finished reproduction Izannah Walker dolls available for sale. Email me at and I will add you to the “New Dolls” mailing list.
