Hands-on Heritage Crafts
Van Cortlandt Manor
Saturday, April 05, 2008 to April 06, 2008
10am to 5pm
Come enjoy plenty of hands-on opportunities. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to take part in historic crafts during this celebration of colonial-era life. Make your own candles, sew a medicine bag and fill it with dried botanicals, operate the blacksmith's bellows, and take part in spinning, weaving, coopering, tinsmithing, hewing wood, quilting, open-hearth cooking, butter churning, cheese-making, and more. Food and beverages are available, or visitors can bring a picnic lunch.
Membership in Historic Hudson Valley is well worth the money!
