I’m excited to be able to offer an assortment of workshops and courses where every learner gets in-depth insight into the art of crochet doll making and marketing the My Pretty Brown Doll Way. The courses are beginner-friendly. As long as you understand the basics of crochet you will be able to grasp these concepts and if you are a more skilled crocheter you will learn tips and tricks to build upon what you already know. The workshop and courses are presented in a digital format and have a Facebook component so you will need to have access to a Facebook profile. They are interactive and you have unlimited access to be able to ask questions and get feedback from others taking the course as well.

MPBD AFRO DOLL HAIR WORKSHOP
I have been asked over and over again and I am happy to say it is finally available. The full Afro hairstyle is one that I have been trying to perfect for a while now and as with a lot of things particularly in the crochet world there is always more than one way to get the end result you want, this tutorial will show you how I create my full Afro hairstyle as seen on some of my most popular designs. This technique can also be used to create a faux frohawk hairstyle and so much more.
Although not a requirement I do highly recommend if you have not already done so that you take the “perfect pom-pom” workshop offered by Aniqua Wilkerson of My Kinda Thing. You will be able to create the Afro hairstyle shown in the tutorial without taking her workshop however if you have taken the “perfect pom-pom” workshop you will find the information very beneficial in perfecting the techniques shown in this workshop.
This workshop is held via a closed Facebook group where you will have access to the recorded video as well as access to me to ask questions. You will have the ability to share your work in the group and receive constructive feedback.
