It is already the time to announce the next years doll making workshops at the European Waldorf Doll Seminar in 2020. This event takes place every second year, bringing hundreds of doll makers from all over the world together. Next year I will be there again, and offer couple of classes. I have been into needle felting the dolls' heads for a while now. I also started needle felting the body and the limbs, which gives me more possiblities in exploring the body forms. I though this might be also...

Since I have started making dolls, I have met so many wonderful people. I was lucky to meet some of them personally, some others only through internet. Many of them I met at the last years European Waldorf Seminar in Holand. (By the way I will attend the next one as a tutor, but I will write about this later in detail) Last week I got a very beautiful surprise in my mailbox. A very beautiful package, with a long letter and a super doll calender. Johanna, whom I met in one of the doll making...

What do you do at a doll making workshop? Make a doll? Several people sitting around a table all two days long, 8 hours a day... You make a doll... It is more than making a doll. It is always more than a doll... In each doll making workshop, I meet several very interesting people. Everyone of them have their stories, some share more, some less... But each time I have emotional moments. Sometimes the eyes get wet, without that the others see. Just look down to the doll, a bit more concentrated...

This year the 100th anniversary of this pedagogical concept will be celebrated. I have some hundreds of ideas to celebrate...

New clothes for Pink Martini

I have been contacted by a very talented curator, who wants to create and curate a new online shop, where she will exhibit only very limited number of artists. She asked me if I would create a collection of dolls for the first issue with the theme "back to school". Although it is a long time to wait, Yukiko allready packed her school bag :) I am very excited about our collaboration. My dear Yukiko is the first of these dolls, as a sneak peak.


When she is grown up, Amber will be judge to Texas. Congratulations to all my US friends! #blackgirlmagic

I know this little girl doesn't look like my other dolls very much. But doesn't every family have person who at first sight does not have much resemblance to the other family members? I mean those whom everyone calls as "your daughter, your son, your sister, your uncle etc... In each conflict situation, the father throws suspicious blicks to the mother, and gets offended blicks back with the comment "He surely looks like your uncle!" or "Why are you looking at me so? She obviously has your...

I always wanted to live for a while in Japan. While I was studying I attended Japanese classes, as I planned to go to Japan to learn japanese art of ceramics. It took me three years to accomplish advance level of japanese. There was a scholarship of the japanese embassy, only three each year. I had to attend a test and the best three would get the scholarship. Unfortunately I was not one of them. Anyway, then I thought that I could still go to Japan. It didn't took long to find out, that I...
