It is also fun to do and consists of making attractive and intricate straw ornaments.
On this beginners’ workshop. we will be looking at the history and the diverse forms the corn dolly has taken over the ages. Students will make three or four corn dollies to take home using traditional methods and old varieties of wheat. We will be making traditional dollies and also be taking a look at a modern take on an old craft.
Tutor Jenny Pritchard has been making corn dollies for fifty years and hasn’t run out of ideas for this versatile and interesting craft.
