Waldorf doll making workshop North Coast Dolls, Newton Abbot, UK. Wonderful artist made all natural dolls to be treasured forever. Atelier Lavendel Waldorf dolls   Wal­dorf doll mak­ing work­shop with North Coast Doll: two amaz­ing days with Megle­na of North Coast Dolls host­ed by Deb­bie Pool (Lit­tle Oake Dolls) , two days full of cre­ativ­i­ty and best spir­its seemed to pass much too quick. Enjoyed every sin­gle minute of them, absolute­ly!
A real­ly spe­cial, great expe­ri­ence I can only point out to to every­one who loves Wal­dorf dolls. The wel­com­ing atmos­phere cre­at­ed by Megle­na, gen­er­ous­ly shar­ing her exquis­ite skills, com­plet­ed  fairy-like with every back­ground sup­port by Deb­bie makes sure you feel real­ly  inspired and con­fi­dent.
The first you see enter­ing the work­shop room is a friend­ly Megle­nas smile, the dreamy face of the doll mod­el (she is pos­ing us in the gar­den on the first pic­ture) and care­ful­ly pre­pared kits on the table includ­ing oh so pret­ty doll dress­es made with nat­ur­al linen and exquis­ite Lib­er­ty fab­ric, made by Magle­na her­self for every doll soul to be born  with­in those walls this week-end.
Patience, keep­ing an eye on every detals and hav­ing an encour­ag­ing word for every one of us, this is Megle­nas teach­ing in per­fec­tion. Thank you so much, Megle­na for this won­der­ful expe­ri­ence! Wish­ing you all the best for the future!
And a  very spe­cial tip: just have a look in Deb­bies sup­plies room. That is mag­i­cal. Thank you Deb­bi for giv­ing us a chance to explore it! There are amaz­ing  locks, which Deb­bie dyes by hand her­self, new yarns in beau­ti­ful nat­ur­al shades and amaz­ing qual­i­ty, pure won­der­ful­ly dyed felt and fab­rics — just all the beau­ty you can imag­ine and a bit more.
As for me — as the day pass, in my heart are still stay­ing  all the mag­i­cal impes­sions of this week-end and  — of course, my new doll (the third pic­ture).  Just sit­ting here now and lis­ten­ing.
Already dressed up by my youngest, to be sure.
Wish­ing a won­der­ful cre­ative time to you all!
Love,
Ele­na

Visiting a doll making class North Coast Dolls in Newton Abbot UK is a jewel for any Waldorf doll lover and crafter. Artist made Waldorf dolls by Atelier Lavendel. A few days spent in Devon seems to have left back some pre­cious  jew­els of mem­o­ries to think of back again and yet again. The tea pots shelves in a tea shop in New­ton Abbot, the mag­nif­i­cent view  out of the art nou­veau style com­fort­able Grand seats in Torquay, the taste of home made cones with clot­ted cream, the open sea behind the Par­son and clerk rocks,  tra­di­tion­al crafters of Cock­ing­tone, the thatched  roofs of Totnes and mists, mist and mists of the moor. Have we real­ly heard the Baskerville hound around?…
This amaz­ing­ly atmos­pher­ic area, sur­round­ed by moors and the sea, with its tow­er­ing red rocks and imag­in­able heather scent, old vil­lages spread here and there and  ever tempt­ing smell of fresh­ly fried fish makes alto­geth­er an amaz­ing sub­tle but  impres­sive mix­ture you just have to fall in love with.  Thank you so very much Deb­bie and Mar­cus for all the warm wel­come, for the warmth of your hearts , for shar­ing these mys­ter­ies!
With all this mag­ic in my heart I have been best pre­pared to take in a new knowl­edge and a new expe­ri­ence. Cre­at­ing an amaz­ing doll soul with Megle­na of North Coast Dolls in New­ton Abbot —  in the next post.
Wish­ing love­ly last Octo­ber day to all!
Love,
