R. John Wright Dolls, Bennington

Behind the Scenes Studio Tour

Naturally artistic, R. John Wright always felt his path would lead to a creative career. Early on, one photo of early Steiff children dolls caught his attention and became the inspiration for his storied doll making career. John and wife Susan Wright, re-invented long-lost techniques for hand crafting dolls in molded felt with sculptural, hand painted faces and detailed costumes and accessories which became the extensive line of award winning R. John Wright dolls.

Now your group has the opportunity to visit their workshop in Bennington VT and see first hand the painstaking process that creates these masterpieces. Whether you’re a long-time fan or first time visitor, welcome to the R. John Wright Workshop!

Inside our production studio our specially trained team of artisans produces each piece to our exacting specifications. Each piece we create represents months, sometimes years, of dedicated planning.

R. John Wright dolls are designed and created 100% at the workshop in Bennington. We invite you to visit our workshop for a behind-the-scenes experience of where all the magic happens.
