Spoons 4: Half Term

October Half Term 2015 brought the kiddywinks to Gressenhall in their droves. With a Creating a Stir target of 300 dolls to meet, and a closed museum from November to March, this seemed like an opportunity too good to miss. We got the total up to 85, and, children being children, the workhouse inmates now include a Ninja, a triclops alien, and someone made almost entirely of buttons. 

This photo shows a trio of workhouse gentlemen, made by a trio of 5 year-old boys. You can't see it, but these dolls will always be warm, because they are wearing vests. Their creators were most insistent upon it.

Here are the Ninja, the Triclops, and Mr Buttons:

There were so many gorgeous dolls made; too many for this blog, but all will appear at the Grand Re-Opening of the workhouse next summer.
 Here are some families happy at work in the doll factory:

And finally... here's a group shot :
