Learn how to soak, braid, twist, and tie cornhusks to make dolls, taking inspiration from country music’s Appalachian folk roots. A traditional craft originating with the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, an alliance of six Native American nations, corn husk doll–making spread throughout the Appalachian region and enjoyed popularity in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when many families used objects and materials found around the home to make instruments and toys. Come learn these fun, traditional techniques and make your own creative corn husk doll.
