Calling all crafters! Join the Thomasville History Center to make a little holiday cheer at the Lapham-Patterson House for a special edition of Hands-On Heritage Workshop series. Experienced crafter Leslie Johnson will guide participants through the steps to turn a few simple materials into a unique ornament on Saturday, December 5 from 10 a.m. until 12 noon. All materials will be provided. Each participant will leave with printed instructions so that they can replicate the craft at home.
The Hands-On Holiday Workshop ornament activity will also be offered as a take-home kit for those who cannot attend in person. Complete step-by-step written instructions and an instructional video will be provided. Be sure to select the correct option at registration. Kits will be available for pickup beginning Monday, December 7.
The fee is $15 for the in-person workshop or the take-home kit. Space for this workshop is limited so participants are required to register in advance Please arrive at the Lapham-Patterson House by 9:50 a.m. so that the program can begin promptly at 10 a.m. Masks will be required for all participants and all materials will be prepared in individual kits in advance to prevent shared materials. Social distancing will be maintained and the workshop may be outside if the weather is nice. Participants may bring their own chair cushions for comfort.
