What you'll do

We will transform socks into stress-relief dolls. It is fun and you learn very useful skills like basic sewing. I like to use socks with a pattern because the dolls inherently get a very unique look that will brighten any day. The experience itself is soothing and by assigning a theme or words to the doll it can represent your stress and provide a healthy way to relief some stress.

Since we are making dolls it could seem a family-friendly experience for those days spent indoors. Keep in mind that young kids find it much harder to stay focused than you, so inevitably it is ADULTS that ends up doing the workshop with me, but that is just as much fun. You can teach them yourself later on. No skill is ever wasted. Sharp needles and scissors are also things you need to keep in mind when you sign your child up.

Other things to note
I will use two cameras for this experience so you can pin my 'desktopview' with the live-action on your screen and look on my fingers.
If you have your theme ready before the workshop we can dedicate the doll to it. But I will show you how to assign a stressfactor to your doll of you want to add it later.

Since I was a little girl I have always been crafting my own stuffed animals and their outfits. One thing lead to another and I never stopped making and designing things. I am extremely creative and like to combine this with a love for upcycling and pure uncut practicality. I have always shown people of all ages how to make fun and creative things and aquire really useful skills while having fun. The only issue for me is what to choose for an online workshop as the options to me are endless.

This Airbnb experience was honestly one of my favorites. Louke has such a beautiful soul. We had so much fun making our dolls. I ordered more socks after the event to make more. I feel like Phoebe from Friends with her sock puppets 🧦 would highly recommend for artsy people looking for a fun craft.

Louke is fantastic. My cousin and I had an amazing time making our cute little dollies. Louke was patient, funny, and creative in her approach to our workshop. We felt so much pride in our projects but also had so much fun together. In a time when maintaining social connections are difficult, this was the perfect remedy. Thank you Louke!!

Cute day with the neighborhood kids... We had fun personalizing our dolls . The tutorial was dummy proof. Louke was very patient with our 6,7 and 8 year olds. I would highly recommend this. The girls already taught one of the boys down the street how to make his own.That in it's self was a testament.

What a fun class for me and my eight-year-old twins. Louke is fun, knowledgeable and incredibly patient. Was fun for myself and kids to learn a new skill and we all loved having a treasure to keep at the end of the experience. Would absolutely recommend as fun, hands on family activity. Thank you, Louke.
