Making Cornhusk Dolls - Fall 2022 Handworks Festival

1:00-4:00pm on Sunday, November 13th  Special Festival Registration Fee: $30

Create a traditional corn husk doll with art teacher Kathie Pratt. Making dolls from corn husks is a centuries-old tradition. The history of the corn husk doll dates back to Native American craftsmanship. Corn husk dolls were later made by European settlers, and enslaved African Americans. With an abundance of corn grown on the region's farms, Appalachian people developed a particular fondness for the material, especially for the making of dolls.
