This winter, in addition to scheduled Home School Days, we are offering several special sessions just for homeschoolers on days when the Village is not open to the public! Sessions are likely to fill fast and pre-registration is required. See below for more details and to register.

Virtual Village (Remote Program) | 3D Tours for Homeschoolers | Ages 5-11 | $10 per student

Join knowledgeable museum educators on a live, virtual tour through some of the favorite spaces at Old Sturbridge Village from the comfort of home. Whether you’ve been to the Village once or one hundred times, this live, 3D tour will give you a new perspective. We’ll zoom in on artifacts and duck behind barriers, all while learning about life in 1830s New England. Participants will receive pre- and post-virtual visit materials so that they can extend them lesson beyond the computer screen. Join in on a hands-on craft with the educators live, or watch and try it on your own later!

In-Person Program: Learning the Basics of Quilting (3-Part Series) | Ages 13-18 | $45 for members and $55 for non-members

In the 19th century, quilting parties were a vital part of peoples’ social lives. Gathering together around a quilting frame, the crafters would sew and talk about the latest news. Household inventories from the 1830s show that most homes had at least one quilt. While quilts kept you warm on a cold New England night, they were also an artform and a way of making sure that fabric scraps did not go to waste.

In this three-part series, home school students will join a Museum Educator in learning the process of making a quilt square from beginning to end. Participants will explore quilted items from OSV’s collections; learn about different stitches and patterns; and then piece together and hand-sew a small, quilted item.

Register for this three-part workshop, taking place March 2nd, 9th, and 1th from 10:00 – 11:30 am
