Someone who will most likely know is Jaydee. She'll probably be on later. There may be others too? ;)

Years ago I did but haven't done any recently.I started by going to evening classes with friends one winter--the lady who ran these was great , her husband made wine at home and was generous with it --unfortunately the corn dollies got more lop sided as the evening progressed! Its actually quite easy to do, you need to get an old varety of corn to get long enough stalks to work ,you soak these and work
with them still quite wet. Joining lengths is by inserting thin end of stalk into lower wide/hollow end.Then its basically a combination of weaving,plaiting and folding stalks over each other.Ros
