Young Pioneers Workshops for Kids

Kids ages 11 to 16 can learn about paper making and printing or basic hand sewing during two workshops offered at the Farmers’ Museum on Wednesday, February 19

 

Your children (ages 11 to 16) will find something special to focus on during winter break with The Farmers’ Museum’s Young Pioneers Workshops. Choose either Pulp to Print: Paper Making & Printing or Introduction to Hand Sewing and the museum’s resident experts will take care of the rest. The workshops take place on Wednesday, February 19, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with lunch included. Cost: $50 ($45 for members). Register at Eventbrite.com.

 

In Pulp to Print: Paper Making & Printing, participants get an immersive hands-on experience with the entire process–starting with the basics of making your own mold and deckle to take home. The group then explores the wide variety of materials that may be used. Finally, dipping in and “pulling paper” gives everyone what they need to use their newly acquired skills to make paper at home. The workshop includes lunch.

 

Introduction to Hand Sewing explores a variety of interesting projects all while learning the basics of hand-sewing. Participants learn how to thread a needle and knot the thread, the five basic sewing stitches, and how to sew on a button. Each child will make a needle case in class and get to take home a basic sewing kit with a second project to complete on their own. All tools are included and the workshop includes lunch.

20 other workshops are scheduled through the year from March to November. Subjects include blacksmithing, cooking on the woodstove, hydroponic gardening, soapmaking, harvesting and processing wool, and more. Visit FarmersMuseum.org for more information on each.

All workshops require advance registration. For workshop descriptions, pricing, and to register, visit FarmersMuseum.org or Eventbrite.com. Refunds available up to seven days before the event takes place (Eventbrite’s fee is non-refundable). For questions, please email t.glisson@farmersmuseum.org.
