About Pooks Studio

Pooks Studio

Maker of Folk Art Dolls for Grown Ups

I have loved dolls all my life and still like to change outfits, brush hair and play with my Sasha dolls. I started making dolls many years ago, for family and friends. Then I began a City and Guilds four year course in stitched textiles. It was a wonderful experience and I found my doll making gene was still as strong. I began to make dolls more seriously and finally decided that that is what I wanted to do full time so the business was born, Pook's Studio.

My dolls have evolved over the last fifteen years from children's rag dolls to potent little totems of womanhood, folk dolls for grown ups. Each one is a labour of love and each one has her own personality. I make one at a time and lavish attention to get my details right. I tried making them in batches but they lost their heart so now each is made individually from start to finish. No two are alike and I don't repeat the combinations that make up that individual so if you chose to buy one you get a one of, just for you. I like it best that way.

    Another beautiful creation from Carol. I ordered within minutes of receiving Chestnut Mouse as she was so adorable and I had been looking at Damson for a few days.So pleased I did, Damson is just what I expected from this talented lady, I love this little mouse.Carols work is beautiful, lots of lovely detail and perfectly neat. I know I will be returning again. Received next day and a beautiful hand sewn card was included with Damson. Thank you
