Since becoming a dollmaker, I have taught techniques and projects in workshops and classes across the United States and abroad. I regularly offer Master Classes at the annual NIADA conference. Check for information at ww.niada.org

By special arrangement, I am occasionally available to teach for doll clubs or groups. Inquiries are welcome at artist@shelleythornton.com

My current teaching activity is preparing online dollmaking courses for the NIADA Academy, which was launched in 2021 at www.academy.niada.org. I have been serving as Director of the Academy during the months of its creation. Please visit and see what courses my colleagues are now offering. When my own courses are completed, I will provide links and information here.
