Weaver – Corn Shuck Doll

Anne Freels


Traditional corn shock doll representing a weaver.  Woven swatch is either a scrap from a SHCG weaver or from a vintage coverlet. “Weaving on a loom is the ancient method of interlacing vertical and horizontal threads at a right angle to make cloth, and for this weaver it is also a form of artistic expression.  Intricate patterns can be woven into the cloth, and that cloth is then used for clothing, blankets, rugs and tapestries.”

  • Approximately 10″tall
  • Colors of dress, hair and weaving will vary
  • Made in TN

Anne Freels

I fell in love with corn shuck dolls in 1975, when I learned how to make one in an Appalachian Studies class during my senior year of High School in Oak Ridge, TN. I have been making the dolls ever since that day. I am a full-time craft artist, and have been a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild since 1989.


Artist Anne Freels is a natural materials artist who has been creating original, one-of-a-kind corn shuck dolls since 1975.
