Step back into the 19th Century and become a pioneer in this fun program. Children will cook on the fire, make rag dolls, write with quill pens and play pioneer games.


July 24- Fairy Gardens

The Victorian era saw an increase in the interest in fairies and elves as settlers looked back to the folk tales of their ancestors. Fairies and elves were both good and bad, pranksters and helpful. They were the guardians of nature, woodland animals and gardens. They were helpful if you respected them, but caused problems when you didn't. In this workshop children will create their own fantastical woodland village using natural and recycled materials.
