The Grovian Doll Museum Wood, Wax, & Papier-Mache Video Playlist

Last weekend, we had the opportunity to attend The Grovian Doll Museum's Event - A Trio: Wood, Wax, and Papier Mache Retreat. Virtual and in-person attendees were delighted to learn and see spectacular dolls, enjoy camaraderie, and delight in fabulous cuisine - and that is only the start!

The event was spectacular - from a movie tour around Pacific Grove to the culinary delights by David Robinson, and the dreamy amount of knowledge in the seminars and DOLLS to behold throughout the event - attendees had a magical time from start to finish.

We also had the opportunity to film many facets of the event as it unfolded and put it together into a playlist for you to enjoy and relive as much as you want. Links are below!
