Rag dolls have been used for different purposes in the past. Today, there are also applications with design awareness in addition to the ones produced traditionally. It has also been the subject of many researches. Rag dolls are discussed in terms of production methods in this study. The materials used were classified and a scheme grouped according to the production method was created. A rag doll design was developed and the visuals of the implementation stages were presented for each method in this diagram. The research aims to classify rag doll methods and to demonstrate their suitability for visual arts education with sample applications. It is considered important since it draws attention to its implementation in visual arts classes so as to keep cultural valuesalive. Research is a situation assessment. However, it is a workshop with the development of diagrams and design workshops by systematizing the current situation on the subject. As a result of the research, a conceptual shape was formed in the classifications made in terms of methods. An example application design for each of these concepts is presented with visuals. It has been concluded that it is an alternative method for three-dimensional work experience gains according to the levels of primary and secondary school students. Simpler or more complex method types suitable for all levels have been suggested.
