Saturday, October 14 at 11 am Betty Cabe will talk about this popular tradition and demonstrate how to transform cornhusk into beautiful dolls and crafts. Also known as cornhusk crafts, this Native American art traces its origins to the indigenous people who domesticated maize in prehistoric times.
“I’m a self-taught corn shuck artist”, says Cabe, who uses shucks from the white corn prolific seeds from her fourth generation farm. Preserving our heritage one fiber at a time is the motto that Cabe has embraced and by freely sharing her art with others, she can guarantee the tradition going on for many years more!
