GUMNUT DOLLIES NEWCASTLE is a group of creative doll makers, using a variety of different media. We warmly welcome new members and visitors. Our dolls range from the naive to sculpted art dolls created with cloth, clay, found objects and much more. We meet on the second Saturday of the month and are based in Newcastle, Australia. Our group has its beginnings with HELLO DOLLIES a doll makers' group established by Anne's Glory Box and GUMNUTTERS, a group of like minded doll enthusiasts.
At the September Hello Dollies meeting, one of your members brought in these two beautifully dressed dolls ... Can anyone identify them? Date? Purpose? Materials?
We thought they could have been decorative dolls, placed atop the bonnets of bridal cars. If you have any information, please leave a comment below.
Oh, and by the way, the September meeting was great - lots and lots of beautiful dolls on show for a 'WINGS" Show and Tell and lots of other good stuff. Come and join us on 27 October at Anne's Glory Box, 10am for more good fun!
