Tuesday brought tons of fun for the curatorial team and a couple of lovely volunteers as we participated in an engaging hands on mannequin making workshop lead by the wonderful Ellen Robinson! We were also joined halfway through by our Margaret Mills of the Historical Fashion Review who managed to create her entire mannequin in half the time that it took the rest of us! Way to go Margaret!
I thought it would be entertaining to share with you some photos of the process. So without further ado here is my mannequin in its initial stages. Not very impressive looking is it?
Trudy and the others working diligently at cutting out their pieces and stacking them together.
After I glued the disks together and started doing a bit of shaping.
I think I can safely say we all had a great time, and owe a great big thank you to Ellen for teaching us how to make these awesome mannequins. And thank you to our wonderful volunteers as well for all your hard work! We hope to see you out at the next CMC event!
(And I’d be remiss if I forgot to thank Jo Ann and Maralyn for bringing us the supplies and a fabulous lunch. Thank you ladies!)
