‘Sewing our Traditions – Dolls of Canada North’
I am off to Whitehorse Yukon Territories next week via ferry and road (map) to visit an exhibit of dolls organized by the Yukon Arts Centre for the Vancouver Olympics. There is a blog for this exhibit that has some interviews with the doll makers. Also a nice, inexpensive publication was issued in support of it called ‘Sewing our Traditions – Dolls of Canada North’. There is not a museum shop indicated on the site but there is a contact email firstname.lastname@example.org mentioned in conjunction with the exhibit publicity. The exhibit ends August 28th so if you are interested in the publication I’d get in contact with them pronto.

PS. I am a little sad some of these makers are working in polyform clay instead of the more natural mediums of stone, leather, wood and fabric.
