Members attended a monthly meeting earlier this summer and made corn dollies. Fiona Thompson, Committee Member, has shared these delightful pictures. Isn’t the little mouse cute?
Traditional corn dollies are of Pagan origin and abound with folklore . It seems they were made from the last sheaves of corn and meant to carry the spirit of a fruitful harvest through to the next spring when seeds would be planted again. A simple, educational website (Project Britian) shows some delightful pictures of the range of designs that can be made (this is not our speaker.)
So, come along on Wednesday 26th June at 7.30 pm at the Congregational Church Hall, Bowden Lane, Market Harborough, to find out more about this traditional craft and have a go at making one to take home.
