We are back with our "Doll & Story Making workshop - Make your own Ginny!". Make your own Ginny workshops are super fun and bring the idea of diversity in conversations very easily with children.
Who is Ginny?
8 yr old Ginny is a busy girl! She is fun-loving and curious.
Ginny was born with many physical challenges. She has a radial club hand. She manages with nine fingers. She needs to wear thick heavy spectacles to see well. Ginny needs to wear a brace to support her wrist. As a doll and a lead character in stories, Ginny was introduced as a 4 yr old in 2019 by Ginny's Planet.
Join us for 90 minutes of fun and creativity.
We will make Ginny (using things we find at home), weave our own stories, engage in conversations on Ginny and the diversity of human bodies, and imagine many things together!
This workshop is open to all age groups and is FREE. But registering in advance is mandatory.
