Weekend Workshops – Paper Dolls at Wilton Historical Society on Saturday, September 10 from 11:00am - 12:00pm
Paper dolls have been a common toy for centuries across the globe. Traditionally, in the United States and Europe, paper dolls have consisted of figures cut out of paper or thin card stock, with clothing fashioned out of paper held onto the dolls with paper folding tabs. Mass production of these dolls began in the early 1800s and continued into the 20th century.
On Saturday, September 10, from 11:00-12:00, Wilton Historical will offer a paper doll-making workshop for kids. The workshop will feature pre-cut paper figures which can be decorated with a variety of paper outfits, led by Museum Educator Catherine Lipper, who will also share her collection of three Madam Alexander dolls in pristine condition. The morning promises an excellent opportunity for creativity and fun, appropriate for boys and girls alike!
