Gain inspiration from the Pacific Northwest Indians, who used fallen trees to create totem poles detailing the history of family and tribe members. Using colorful paper and vibrant, bold designs, we’ll sculpt the characters around us, and then step into a “photo booth” to make an interactive family totem.

This event is free with admission to the grounds.

Spend one, two, or three vacation-week afternoons making wintry art together as a family. Winter snow softens the shapes of the outside world and adorns trees and buildings with delicate flakes and icicles.

Drawing inspiration from the shimmery winter weather, weave a tapestry of soft yarn, puffy snowball pompoms, and crystalline beads, and hang it from a found twig to evoke the textures of a snowy day.

This program is geared towards families with children between the ages of five and 10. Space is limited.

29 East Fourth Street was home not only to the eight Tredwell children, but also to two young granddaughters. Come tour the house and learn what life was like for children (and adults) in the 1850s, from schoolwork and chores to games and play. Could you carry a bucket of coal up steep stairs? Do you have a calling card? A top hat? What, no hoop skirt? How did you take a bath? And penmanship really, really mattered.

This program is best for children ages eight to 12 years old. Reservations are not required.
