Friends’ Day Craft Classes


Hearth Cooking: (90 minutes, $10 per person)
Visit the Museum Education Center and try your hand at preparing a historic ‘receipt’ over an open hearth. Using tools made by the potter, tinsmith, and blacksmith, you will experiment with dairy and milk while making soft cheese, pounded cheese, and butter.
Weaving and Dyeing: (1 hour, $5 per person)
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to dye wool and weave? Try out carding wool, watch a spinning demonstration, try your hand at weaving, and learn about dyeing, an activity that took place during warmer months.
