Join us once again at Ross Bay Villa Historic House Museum for an engaging lecture and workshop.
Fashion illustrations and playthings have been around for hundreds of years, but advances in printing saw an explosion of paper dolls in the 19th Century. Celebrity figures, boxed sets, and colour-it-yourself versions delighted both young and old. Following an illustrated lecture, conservator and doll enthusiast Kjerstin Mackie will help you create the kind of paper dolls Maisie and Katie Roscoe may have enjoyed at Ross Bay Villa. Children ages 8 and up and accompanied by an adult are welcome.
Tickets are $20, and refreshments are included. Please purchase your tickets in advance at http://tinyurl.com/y3gj9k77. Alternatively, you can drop by Ross Bay Villa on Saturday between 11:00 and 2:00 to purchase a ticket.
