The McKoning Hymn

By June 29, 2007 March 10th, 2020 No Comments

One of the highlights of the year for me is my Doll Holiday and Workshop Week in the little village of Cernay La Ville in the Parc de la Haute Vallee de Chevreuse near Versailles and Paris. During this week we will make a complete doll in airdrying clay, clothing included. Alternative program: working with porcelain clay (sculpting in porcelain on head, hands and feet). In 2007, students Anne Robin, Barbara, Gail. Helen, Jo, Karin, Kathie, Maria made a song about our hosts Janny and Albert Koning.

Location: Paris – Cernay la Ville
Our hosts: Janny and Albert Koning

Thanks Anne Robin, Barbara, Gail. Helen, Jo, Karin, Kathie, Maria for the text
