South East Open Studios

Me in my studio

Thank you everyone for coming along - hopefully I will repeat it next year!


I'm so excited to be opening the door to my studio and sharing the magical world of doll making with you.

You don't need to book, just turn up on the following dates between 11 am to 3 pm.

Thursday 9 June
Friday 10th June
Saturday 11th June
Sunday 12th June

Thursday 16th June

My studio is at my home in Staplehurst. Please look out for the signs and walk through the gate into the garden when you arrive. My address is Polly had a Dolly, 2 Bathurst Close, Staplehurst, Kent TN12 0NA

I will be working on my dolls so you will be able to see me making and the techniques I am using. Please ask any questions and I am happy to share any particular skills with you.

I will have a small selection of dolls out for you to see and purchase, but the main purpose of the open studios is to share my love of dollmaking so please don't feel that you need to buy anything!

Refreshments will be available including gluten free brownies from Vallance and Sons and locally roasted coffee from St Applehurst - a small donation will be appreciated!

I have a noisy, friendly dog so I will shut him away if necessary - he loves visitors.

Also in the village are two other artists showing their studios - Louise Pettifer and Birgitta Wilson so you could make an afternoon of it.
