Dollmaking Journey - Hilary Jean Tapper

Dollmaking Journey

Create your own little Courage Doll using hand stitching and all-natural materials.

No prior experience of stitching is required - learn the basics while you craft your own palm-sized enchanting doll, outfits to dress her or him in and a sweet little bed.  Learn about the tradition and therapeutic benefits of dollmaking.  Bring along any pre-loved bits of fabric to make into outfits, learn tea-dyeing, hairdos and all sorts of details to make your doll your very own, to keep or gift to a loved one.

Some materials and tools are provided.

Our courses page contains a summary of all courses on offer for the current term.

Please ensure you are familiar with our refund policy.

IMPORTANT information:

 No classes on public holidays.

All courses need a minimum number to go ahead. If your course does not have enough enrolments, we regret that we will have to cancel and will let you know either by email or text. Please check your emails regularly. Courses are usually confirmed or cancelled 2-3 working days prior to the scheduled start date.

NB: Only a paid enrolment secures a place in a class.

In most cases classes will be taught by the tutor named in the brochure/website on the dates stated. We make every effort to make our programme as accurate as possible at the time of printing. We do, however, reserve the right to make any changes that may be necessary. This includes changes to day, time, venue and tutor.


Refund Policy

Cancellation by us

We may, regretfully, have to cancel courses if we do not receive enough enrolments, in which case you will get a full refund.
We may choose to close a course if there is a high level of non-attendance or withdrawals, in which case a proportional refund may be made.

Cancellation/postponement/suspension due to extreme weather, Tutor illness or unforeseen circumstances

Wherever possible, we will offer replacement or extended sessions to make up for sessions cancelled/postponed/suspended due to extreme weather, tutor illness or other unforeseen reason.

Cancellation by the learner

If you need to withdraw from a course and you inform us in writing, at least a week before the course is due to start, you will be eligible for a refund minus a $20 administration charge.

If you withdraw from a course at any other time, you will not be eligible for a refund. No refunds are given after commencement of a course to ensure course viability.
