Crafty Historian

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. We try to have our fee based on cost of supplies – general range is $5 to $10.

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]. Check our our Facebook group by searching for Crafty Historian.
