GUMNUT DOLLIES NEWCASTLE is a group of creative doll makers, using a variety of different media. We warmly welcome new members and visitors. Our dolls range from the naive to sculpted art dolls created with cloth, clay, found objects and much more. We meet on the second Saturday of the month and are based in Newcastle, Australia. Our group has its beginnings with HELLO DOLLIES a doll makers' group established by Anne's Glory Box and GUMNUTTERS, a group of like minded doll enthusiasts.
The first Hello Dollies meeting for 2012 will be held on Saturday, 28 January. What an exciting strat to the year. The wonderful Ann Maullin will be showing us how to sculpt a face. Here is an example of Ann's beautiful work... so please bring a sculpting needle thread, and scissors for this special insight into needle sculpting.
