We have relocated our corporate headquarters and our residence to Riverton, Utah Check our event list below for a seminar that fits your schedule. We have semi retired to work in my studio in Utah, rather than traveling around the nation. Being semi-retired means I teach only four students in each class, or an occasional private course.  I no longer teach large classes, that is better for the student and much easier for me. I spend most of my time teaching, sculpting and managing our artdolls business. I will travel from time to time, but not nearly as much as I have for the past two decades.  I can teach for much less money at home, so I will pass those savings on to my students.  I have reduced the cost of the Beginning and Advanced course from $495 to $395. The three day seminar will include learning how to sculpt a one-of-a-kind doll and the supplies for the workshop.  We also have a costume maker to assist us in completing the costumes during the class if you desire.

We are so close to all of the hotels that I can provide transportation from your lodging to my studio each morning and at the end of the class each evening. The classes are held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 to 5:00.  We normally finish the classes by 1:00 on Sunday so the students can fly home on Sunday.
