Crafty Historian

Upcoming Crafty Historian

June 10, 2017: Paper Quilling  Quilling is the art of curling strips of paper into interesting designs. Colonial artists decorated candle holders and tea trays with pretty quilling. You only need to learn how to roll a strip of paper around a pencil – sounds easy!! We will practice with different shapes and gluing techniques then create a work of “art”! Fee is $5 per participant. This craft is appropriate for fingers that can manipulate small shapes (like, say, age 8 and up). Younger siblings are welcome to make a paper tube craft!!


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 [email protected].

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