About this event

Family Learning Series

Are you curious about life in times past? How did these folks live day to day? Join us for a fun and informative Sunday afternoon series as we explore skills needed to live life long ago.

Sign up for one class or the entire series. Space is limited to 15 children per session. We will do our best to hold classes outdoors mask free, indoor classes will require masking. One participating adult is required for each class.

Candle Making September 26th, 1pm

How did people in Colonial Times function after the sun went down? Learn how many options were available to light their home so they could get their work done. Take home a candle you make together.

Salt September 26th, 2pm

Tea wasn’t the only reason the colonists were upset with Britain. Find out why salt was important and how these determined people managed to make their own. You will bring home Narragansett Bay sea salt.

Quilts October 24, 1pm

When is a quilt more than a blanket? Together we will listen to the story “The Patchwork Path” by Bettye Stroud and unravel the Secret Codes of the Underground Railroad. Make a felt quilt with your own secret code to bring home.

Journals October 24th, 2pm

Why do we know so much about how people lived in the past? These folks wrote everything down. In this class we will create fun journals and feather quills to record your own history.
