CWW: Kids Crafternoons at Worcester Historical Museum

This doesn’t start until next Wednesday, but I wanted to give folks a chance to register in case they were interested.

The Worcester Historical Museum will have three craft sessions on upcoming Wednesday mornings; cost is only $2 per child, free for adults and members.

Details from their website:

This Summer, be inspired to craft a project of your own based on artifacts from the collection of Worcester Historical Museum, in Kids Crafternoons.  Sessions are 10:00 AM-11:30 AM and are appropriate for ages 4-12.  Advanced registration is required.

For more information, e-mail or call 508-753-8278.

Each session is limited to 25 children.  Adults must attend with a child. Seating is first-come-first-served, and the doors open at 10:00 AM.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
Our first Kids Crafternoons will focus on Norton pottery. Come and decorate terracotta pots inspired by Norton pottery.  This pottery was known as the Tupperware of the 19th century and was used to store dry and preserved foods.  Make a little tissue paper flower to go inside.

Wednesday, August 8 10:00 AM-11:30 AM, at Salisbury Mansion

Our second Kids Crafternoons will take inspiration from the wallpaper at Salisbury Mansion.  Mrs. Salisbury traveled seven hours (multiple times) to pick out the wallpaper found in her home. Now we have found another use for it – decoupage! Covering boxes with fun wallpaper prints. Take them home and use them for your own special treasures.

Wednesday, August 15 10:00 AM-11:30 AM, Worcester Historical Museum auditorium

Our third Kids Crafternoons will be inspired by the great stained-glass window in Worcester Historical Museum’s auditorium.  As summer comes to an end, capture the sun while you still can by painting sun catchers inspired by our auditorium stained glass window.
