Our club rooms are situated in Ringwood East (Melbourne Australia)

ACDA has been in operation for 23 years and is managed via a committee of doll makers elected from the sixty club members

The dolls are mostly created from fabric and some with polymer clay and all are intricately dressed in hand stitched clothes and hand crafted miniature accessories. Their size ranges from a few centimeters to larger ones over 60cm tall
