Professional Doll Makers Art Guild Ooak Art Dolls

Professional Doll Makers Art Guild is a group of diverse and ever growing One of a kind (OOAK) Art Doll makers. Our group of International artists create dolls in Polymer clay, paper clay, cloth and mixed media as well as artist sculpted and cast, resin and Porcelain Ball jointed dolls ( BJD ) and Silicone Babies, Reborned by the artists themselves. No other group gathers such a wide array of doll makers in one place. Our award winning OOAK doll artists also take the time to volunteer as mentors so that new and budding artists can learn at an advanced pace to create beautiful art dolls through the PDMAG Mentor/apprentice Academy. Whether your a Master doll artist who wants to share the experiences of doll making with kindred spirits or a new artist who wants guidance into this complex market or a complete beginner who would love to learn to make hand sculpted dolls and figurative sculpture of your own, PDMAG has a place for you.
