"Ein traumhaft schöner Workshop.

Vielen Dank,dass ich soviel bei dir lernen durfte."❤️
Ulrike Jenkner

"I made myself an early Christmas present this time by giving myself the gift of attending a workshop run by the lovely Gonca from loulabee dolls! A weekend in Berlin full of creative energy, great conversations and the support and guidance of our fantastic course instructor Gonca, who accompanied our every step with such detail and expertise. The result is this enchanting little lady here, who has taken a cosy place in my studio and watches me work attentively with a mischievous smile on her face.

If you want to spend a weekend like this with great people and creative work, then take your chance! Gonca is offering a new course for 2024. I can really recommend her workshop with all my heart."

"Lale is a dream that came true last November @loulabeedolls workshop in Berlin.

Many thanks to lovely Gonca for her teaching and sharing her knowledge and little secrets."

Monique D.

"I took a class with her in Belgium. She is such a good teacher. This class includes a pattern and making a weft into a wig.

If you want to make a giant step forward in your doll making this is the place to be!"

Pam C.

"Herzlichen Dank nochmal für den tollen Kurs!

Ich bin ganz glücklich mit meiner selbstgemachten Puppe. Nach dem langen Entscheidungsprozess Puppe kaufen, Puppe machen lassen und nun Puppe selbst machen fühlt es sich vollkommen richtig an! Und es macht mich stolz und froh, dass ich die Puppe für mein Kind selbst gemacht habe. Dank Dir für die gute Anleitung und das Teilen Deines Erfahrungsreichtums."

"Dear Gonca,

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge, introducing and teaching us this beautiful craft of making a Waldorfdoll.

I enjoyed the making in the company of the other women, learning, hearing stories and expending my horizon while creating, and now this doll which I created especially for my daughter, is a testimony of all that love."

small doll making workshop (beginner)

Even though doll making is mostly about slowing down the time, for many for us the time is still a very limited good. Although each of us have the same 24 hours a day, we all have different feeling of having enough time. Having so many balls in the air at the same time: work, kids, family, friends...


So I wished to offer a a one day workshop in which we make a little snuggle doll, which also fits for the beginners, who do not have any previous doll making experience.


This workshop is also great opportunity for the becoming mothers during the last weeks before their babies' arrival to make a snuggle doll for them, as well as anyone who wishes to start with doll making, or develop their skills in classical Waldorf style dolls.


The snuggle doll is approximately 35 cm tall.


The workshops takes place with minimum 4 participants.

Please note: The price is only for the participation to the workshop. It doesn't include any other facilities, like travel expanses, accommodation and meals.


150 € including the material costs, and a mohair crocheted wig for the hair.
