Make Peg Dolly People

Make Peg Dolly People

In another of our videos we show you how to make peg dolls. These would have been similar to those played with by Victorian children whose parents were not wealthy enough to afford the expensive porcelain dolls, like the one in our exhibition. You can find wooden pegs with ‘bead heads’ online or in craft/hardware shops and then decorate them with marker pens or fabric and other materials, depending on what you have to hand.
