As I’ve mentioned previously, the museum that I’m the Director/Curator of has a Moravian cloth doll in it’s collection. In December I’ll be teaching a class at the museum on how to make a doll like the one owned by the museum. While it isn’t an Izannah type of doll, I thought some of you might still be interested in taking the class anyway. It’s a charming, well made cloth doll that has of lot of very nice details.
Moravian Style Cloth Doll. December 12, 2009 10:00-4:00
Come join us for a creative, informative day of sewing. Learn to make a cloth doll in the style made by the Sewing Circle of the Moravian Church. The pattern for the doll that students will be making in this class is based on the Moravian Rag Doll (1950-18) that has long been a resident in the Knapp House “Toy Room”. This cloth doll has painted features and is traditionally dressed in either pink or blue gingham. Participants in this class must know the basics of machine sewing. A list of materials and equipment to bring along with you will be sent upon receipt of your registration. Tuition includes the doll pattern and a printed cloth face (either for reference or for you to use instead of painting).
Tuition: $80 for members, $89 for non-members.
The Class is being held at the museum, 6 Aspetuck Avenue, New Milford, CT. A minimum registration of four students is necessary for the class to be held.
