Phippen hosts cornhusk doll workshop

On Saturday, Dec. 15, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., the Phippen Museum is offering a traditional craft workshop for kids ages 10 to 16 years. One of the earliest children's crafts in America was the creation of simple dolls made from cornhusks. They were common toys for early Native American children and, when the first European settlers arrived, their children adopted this craft, too. It soon spread across the country.

During this workshop, museum staff will instruct students in the history and mythology surrounding this ancient craft and guide them through the steps to creating their own cornhusk doll.

The cost is only $3 per child and includes all materials and admission to the museum. Space is limited; pre-registration is required.

The Phippen Museum is located just a few minutes north of downtown Prescott at 4701 Highway 89 N. For additional information on this or any other museum event, call 778-1385 or visit www.phippenartmuseum.org.
