Locker Hooking Workshop

April 6  9 am – 4 pm

Registration Fee: $15

Ever wonder what our ancestors did with old clothing before the Salvation Army existed? Why, they recycled the fabric into many things! This workshop teaches participants the art of Locker Hooking: an old craft using scrap fabric to make beautiful rugs, placemats, chair seat covers, hand bags and more. Participants will learn how to design patterns on canvas, cut the fabric, and use the locker hook and yarn to create mats of all styles. In this class you will finish one piece and come away with the skills to create many more. Fee includes all materials. Please bring a sack lunch.

Dutch Oven Workshop: Comfort Foods

April 27  9 am – 1 pm

$12 per person

Who knew that meatloaf and macaroni and cheese were cooked 200 years ago? In the 19th century, homes lacked electricity and gas to cook food, so all our favorite comfort foods were cooked over the fire. Come learn several recipes from the Victorian table and stay to eat them! Participants will leave with a full stomach, recipe booklet, and know-how of 19th century cooking! Class size is limited!
