PAPER MACHE DOLLS’ WORKSHOPS

The Museum Commitee organizes workshops dedicated to nursery and primary schools’ children where they learn how to assemble cardboard dolls or puppets, first combined with split pins and then coloured and dressed as well. These simple activities stimulate their creativity and are very helpful to understand how difficult is to finalize a complete doll.

It is currently under study, but not yet operative, a workshop activity for secondary school children, aimed at the creation of paper mache subjects.
