CRAFTY HISTORIAN Information

Crafty Historian events are held on the third Saturday of most months from 10:30 to 12:30. 
Reservations are required by Thursday prior to the event so that we will have enough supplies for everyone.
Each event includes an educational, art-focused activity that stimulates creativity and interest in traditional crafts.
Children 9 and older are welcome to attend without a parent (although parents are most welcome to stay and assist), and younger children must have an adult to help them.
There is a minimal charge for each program based on the type of craft for the day. These events are wonderful opportunities for both parents/grandparents and children to experience history in a fun and interactive way. 
You can get on the children's activity email list by emailing to education@wnchistory.org
 


Crafty Historian participants get to sign the Crafty Historian apron!!

Individual or Corporate Sponsors are appreciated! Sponsorships are $200 per event.
