Somewhere 5 years ago I saw a doll by Marina Zimina and it was like a desire to do the same switched on. Of course I had a fear I couldn`t do it. I have no art education I`m a technician and a doll is so gentle creature. But her assuring words gave me self-confidence and so 5 years dolls are with me or I am with them, I mean we are inseparable. When I finish one doll, I`m already thinking about the next one, thanks to Marina. She is a wonderful artist, she creates dolls and projects, which touch everyone, she`s always ready to share her experience. Everyone goes after her study with a doll and with knowledge that if you have a desire and application everything is possible. I`m glad that Marina is not only my teacher but a friend as well.

I was lucky to visit Marina`s workshop. I had no experience in modeling and I was nervous when I started. But soon I estimated all advantages of on-line study. All lessons by Marina were consistent, comprehensive and well-detailed. It was a real pleasure to realize theory with such a gifted teacher. Marina carefully supervised each step we made, corrected, supported, she didn`t let us relax and helped any time we wanted. I got self-confidence and I finished something I`ve started. The birth of my little doll was like a prize for me, as well as the desire to create, and to develop I myself. Thanks for the wonderful course, talent and patience.

It was a very comprehensive, step-by-step course, an acquaintance with polymer clay. How to bake it, keep it, flat it – everything used to be new to me. I learned to model tiny tiny hands, a face. I thought I would never manage to make a face. Now I make shoes, I know how to choose materials, clothes. That course gave me a lot! Thanks, master!

Irina Velikanova
Recently when I visited doll`s exhibitions when I saw modeled dolls, I thought deep down in my heart that it was really beautiful, but not everyone is talented enough to do it. Now, as far as I passed through three Marina`s workshops, I can say for sure, that what man has done man can do. The last time I modeled was at the kindergarten and now I learned the ropes of a doll`s from LivingDoll birth step by step at Marina`s supervision. The result was far above my expectations! Dolls are wonderful! They`re in fact alive. Still cannot believe I made all these little fingers and faces. Marina helped me to gain self-confidence and opened a door to the unreal and so wonderful World of Dolls!

It was 5 years ago when I fell in love with a world of magic and miracles of signature dolls! The art of little steps … everything started with Marina Zimina`s workshop! Thanks to it I saw myself in a new perspective. When I finished my very first doll I couldn`t believe I`d made it myself! I understand you have to believe in yourself and your forces. Slow and steady wins the race!

Irina Zhmurenko
My acquaintance with a signature doll had happened long before I met Marina! So when I came to her workshop I felt a little skeptical about all that. I finished an art school and I graduated from a faculty of architecture and academic sculpture.) and also I`ve already made a couple of “masterpieces”, so I had a “huge” experience!))) it was much easier for me than for other beginners, but I understood, that basic knowledge was not the only thing you need!) Marina clarified clear, comprehensively each stage of a work on the doll! You didn`t need to figure out more. Because sometimes a good expert is not a good teacher. But it isn`t about Marina! She didn`t spread herself, everything was very professional! 

Are You Still Not Agree That You Can Create The Best Doll In The World?
