At the end of the day you get to take home your own newly-dressed doll!
There is a 45 minute break for lunch (not supplied by Loop, but there are lots of places very nearby on Perry Street and around the West Village. Feel free to bring your lunch as well and stay in the space and either carry on working or have a quiet break).

About Julie Arkell
Sunday November 17th 10am-6pm
Julie Arkell is one of the UK’s best recognised, and much loved, contemporary folk artists. She creates delightful imaginative creatures, full of wit and whimsy that bring a smile to your face.
Working in papier-maché and mixed media, Julie combines craft and fine art techniques and process with vintage fabrics, found and discovered curios, papier-maché, stitch and knit to create these unique, and distinctly personal, objects.
Born in London, Julie Arkell studied at West Surrey College of Art and Design in Farnham before gaining a diploma in textiles at St Martin’s School of Art. Arkell’s work spans art and craft, following traditional folk art techniques of creating doll-like figures from “found” objects, with the approaches of key 20th century artists such as Pablo Picasso, Duchamp and the Pop Art movement by shunning traditional “fine art” techniques and materials, and taking inspiration from the art of children.
Julie Arkell’s work is inspired by old art, textiles, stories, words and phrases. The creatures that Julie creates, each with their own stories, messages and accessories, possess a magical and wistful appeal, and reflect a truly unique contemporary UK folk artist.
Each of the Julie Arkell pieces in our collection of dolls and creatures is a beautiful one-off creation and a truly unique gift for collectors, or for those interested in owning a piece of exquisite contemporary folk-art of their own.
At the pop-up shop we will also have Julie's two monograghs as well as some of her exquisite pieces for sale.
Full refund of payment for a class will be given for cancellations only if the spot can be filled by another student. Please be considerate.
We reserve the right to cancel a class in unusual circumstances. We try to avoid this wherever possible, but sometimes it cannot be avoided. In this situation, of course, a full refund will be given.
We're sorry but Loop can not be financially responsible for extreme weather conditions or any other situations that are out of its' control.
