About us

We are a group of dedicated Reborn, Porcelain and Cloth Doll artists, and Antique Doll and Bear collectors with a wide and diversified range of knowledge who want to see our hobby and the passion for our hobby stay alive by promoting the love of Dolls and Bears at our competitions and shows.

Over the years we have had many world-renowned artists come to participate in our shows and teach workshops, from advanced hair rooting, to painting using various mediums, to sculpting a doll from scratch.

We are always happy to hear what “you” would like to see and do at our shows.

In addition, it is important for us as a group to give to those less fortunate by donating a sum of money each year to a charity.

In conjunction with our competition and display we have demonstrations and workshops available for all to attend.

Annual Competition and Show

The 2022 competition and show will be held on Saturday 8th October (10:00am - 4:00pm) and Sunday 9th October (10:00am - 3:00pm) at Fullarton Park Community Centre, 411 Fullarton Road, Fullarton.

The entry price will be reviewed in 2022 but is likely to remain at just $5, with children under 12 free.

Full details of the competition, and how to enter, can be found here.

Demonstrations

We have been very lucky over the years to have had many great local artists give up their time to do Reborn Doll demonstrations from hair rooting, to using powders, to using air dry paints. These demonstrations are free, so come and have a play. Don’t be afraid to ask questions; there is always someone willing to help.

Workshops

Each show we try to offer workshops that allow the doll maker to grow in their hobby, perhaps by trying different methods of painting, or types of paint, or to try their hand at something new, like sculpting.

Please let us know what you would like to do or learn!

Details of the October 2022 workshops can be found here, once finalised.

In 2021 we had two talented South Australian artists - Jade Warner who held a silicone painting class and Lisa Sylvia who held a reborn doll painting class.
