Doll Makers at work. During the two days of the workshop, we focused on the painting. After the group demonstration everyone got to work, and it was really quiet!
Doll Makers came from near and far: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Ohio, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Puerto Rico.
