Museum program examines Tasha Tudor's dollhouse
Volunteers at Colonial Williamsburg’s Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum will discuss their experiences working with renowned children’s book illustrator Tasha Tudor on the construction of her dollhouse during the program, “Building a Small Wonder.” In October, the program will be offered from 3-4 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays and 1-2 p.m. on Sundays. In addition, the program will be offered 3-4 p.m. Nov. 28-29, Dec. 25-27 and Jan. 1.
Volunteers will be on hand in the “Holiday Favorites” exhibit to discuss crafting this marvelous home in miniature. Dean Couch, Bob Cookingham, Roger Cunningham, Bill Kafes and Sharon Keith are scheduled to answer any questions visitors have.
The “Holiday Favorites” exhibition, which will be on view at the Folk Art Museum Nov. 28, 2002-Jan. 1, 2003, includes the 15-foot long dollhouse. Tasha’s dollhouse features handmade dolls Emma and Capt. Thaddeus and furnishings that have been collected over many years, including a wide range of antique miniatures and items made to Tasha’s specifications.
