Upcoming Crafty Historian

May 20, 2017: Check back for more information!

June 17, 2017: Check back for more 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 [email protected].

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