Cornhusk Doll Workshop

Come to the Cayuga Museum on Saturday, June 29 for a very special Creative Explorers Saturday activity! Kristin Asche from Ganondagan State Historic Site will lead a cornhusk doll making workshop. This workshop will present the importance of corn to the Seneca people and its many uses. The instructor will bring many different examples of cornhusk items to the classroom. Your class will hear the story of The No Face Cornhusk Doll and construct their own individual doll.

This workshop will start at 10:30am in the Cayuga Museum Downtown location at 144 Genesee Street, Suite 100 and last about an hour. The program is free to attend, but reservations are required as capacity and materials are limited. Please note that reservations are for children only. Adults are welcome to attend, but only children will be provided with materials to create cornhusk dolls. This activity will require some ability for a child to independently work on the doll without abundant adult supervision, so we recommend this workshop for children ages 5-12.
