Extraordinary Women: Handmade Dolls with Fran Phillips

Our 14” tall rag doll is named after famed abolitionist, women’s rights activist, and Nantucket native, Lucretia Coffin Mott (1793-1880).  Inspired by the painted cloth dolls of the mid-1800s and patterned after a ca-1900 doll in the instructor’s collection, our Little Lucretia is dressed in her Suffragette best, a white dress and Votes for Women sash.  This year is the centennial of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote.  Make your own Little Lucretia or name her after your own activist ancestor.

Maximum class size: 8
