The Hobart Doll Club holds an annual doll show showcasing work by its members and other interested dollmakers and is the highlight of our dollmaking year. The competition covers a variety of categories, and includes porcelain dolls (antique reproduction and modern), cloth dolls and teddy bears. Each year, we invite two judges from the mainland who, together with our own Dot Denison, painstakingly examine each of the hundreds of entries to award points on skill and artistry, awarding rosettes in each category and cash prizes for outstanding entries.
After the judging has taken place the event is open to all members of the public especially collectors and makers and those interested in taking up the activity. Funds raised from the event are donated to a single specified charity agreed upon by the Club members.
