New look

CWA gives dolls a ‘make-un­der’

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Front Page - Therese Col­man

The Mar­garet River Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion will host a doll “make-un­der” work­shop early next month.

The faces of Bar­bie and Bratz dolls will be wiped off and new, more re­al­is­tic faces drawn on.

Trea­surer Skye Snelling said she was go­ing to give her daugh­ter’s dolls a “make-un­der” but thought it would be good to get the com­mu­nity in­volved in the process.

“As a women’s or­gan­i­sa­tion, the move­ment be­hind the work­shop is to pro­mote more re­al­is­tic-look­ing dolls for chil­dren to play with — both boys and girls,” she said.

“The CWA is com­mit­ted to re­source­ful­ness, so re­cy­cling old dolls is in line with our val­ues.

“It also makes for a fun work- shop and get-to­gether, and of course men and boys are wel­come to come along too.”

The work­shop date is yet to be con­firmed but is pro­posed for next week, and mem­bers and non-mem­bers of any age are en­cour­aged to at­tend.
