I have never taken an on-line class from The Doll Street Dreamers before so I wasn't sure what to expect. When I purchased my class I received a confirmation and a link to a Yahoo Group that belongs to the teacher.....Colleen Babcock. I then did the usual steps to become a member of the site. When you join most Yahoo groups you are not immediately a member. There is an administrator/owner of the group who gives you access.
The group has a forum so that you can post questions to and get answers from the teacher. You can share ideas and problems with each other and generally have fun. You can also set up your own album for pictures to show your progress, post pictures of what you need help with and finally post your finished doll. It's just like any class.......the more you participate the more you get out of the class.
So, that done all I needed to do was wait until today when the class opened and sure enough I received a notice from the Group admin that this week's lesson had been posted. Along with that was the pattern pieces and the class supply list.
Week One: The Head........eeeek!
This is going to a very stressful week...hee hee. Twenty-four pages of instruction!!!!! The head has three pieces to it and the construction is a bit fidley so I'm sure I will be making several until I'm satisfied that I have it right. The face has a bit of soft sculpture, very dramatic makeup, separate eyelids that you attach and eyelashes too. Oh boy....I promise not to swear......... much.
I need some supplies that I don't have so a shopping trip is needed........:)
