Embroidered Dolls of Multicolores
Multicolores, the artisan based Guatemalan non-profit we co-founded, is working with a new group of artisans to expand their embroidery skills. Following the model of the rug hooking project, we’ve trained 5 leaders who in turn trained 24 other women. We’ll present a trunk show of some of their first dolls- including dolls by the leaders and their students.
