571  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Santa's elves' workshop on: December 29, 2013 11:09:41 PM

For my partner in the IYP, I created Santa's workshop to fill her Advent calendar. I made the wooden workshop and the trees, and the table out of thin plywood. The furniture is made mostly with balsa. The accessories are made mostly from polymer clay, but also from wire, wood, fabric, paper, cardboard...

The elves are bendable and pose-able. I made an armature with wire. I added heads and shoes with polymer clay and put them in the oven. Once cooled down, I wrapped embroidery floss around the hands shape with a needle. Then, I wrapped wool roving around their bodies and felted the roving with a three needles tool. After that, I sew, cut and, embroidered them some tiny clothes that can be removed.
I made 6 elves who each are in charge of a part of Christmas.
The elf in charge of the mail and the naughty or nice list.

The elf who stuffs the toys. Well, he just had a little accident and fell head first in the stuffing.

The carpenter elf is able to create lots of nice toys with all his tools.

This elf has lots of ribbons, tags and wrapping papers and can wrap toys real fast, and neat too.

The sewing elf has a sewing machine, but he also can sew by hand. He embroiders too and likes to choose fabrics from the many ones he stores on his shelves.

The cooking elf is very busy at this time of the year baking cookies and cakes an candies.

All the elves like to take an afternoon snack together. They talk together while enjoying the baked goods.

Here are some of the toys they made this afternoon.

Beautiful use of string art.
I like how you used the colors to create a rainbow effect.
