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.

Upcoming Crafty Historian dates and activities!!

November 16. 2019 A Crafty Hodge Podge!

A hodge-podge is defined as a mixture of different things.

It’s time to use up lots of leftover craft supplies and this sounds like just the thing.

For most crafts we have all the supplies for many lovely things, but crafters are welcome to bring things that you want decorated with beads, sequins or decoupage.
There is a link to some ideas of things to bring that you might like to decorate, but I’ll have lots of things to make that you won’t need extra items. The link is HERE
Be prepared for a bit of confusion with lots of things going on, but it will be LOTS of fun!!
This might be the last Crafty Historian since our resident Crafty Historian will be resigning as of Nov 30 – so if you’ve been a fan of these events, this is not one you want to miss!
Fill out the reservation form HERE, and I’ll email a confirmation to you. If you have questions before or after your reservation, be sure to email Lisa at [email protected]
