    Ox Driving

    Details:  250 years ago, oxen were the backbone of many farms in Colonial America as they slowly--but powerfully--served as our ancestors' heavy lifters. Today, oxen are a rare sight, an unfortunate victim of modernization. During this three-hour workshop, you will have the opportunity to step back in time and rediscover the world of oxen. Topics to be covered include daily care, grooming, yoking, commands, and basic driving. We will go at a pace that is comfortable to all. To maximize hands-on participation, this workshop is limited to 4 participants. This class runs over lunch time but no food will be provided. You are welcome to bring a snack if you would like. Ages 18 and up only.

    Price: $45 (museum members) / $50 (non-members)

    Introduction to Bobbin Lace

    Details:  Introduction to Bobbin Lace - Bobbin lace is an intricate decorative art form that takes years to master. This class is designed to give you a very basic foundation. You will learn how to set up bobbins, do basic stitches, and start to learn to read patterns. There will be a few patterns to choose from. This class is geared toward the absolute beginner. If you already have some knowledge of bobbin lace this class is probably too basic for you. The cost of the class includes 12 basic plastic bobbins to take home and instructions to make a basic pillow so you can continue to practice at home. This class runs over lunch time but no food will be provided. You are welcome to bring a snack if you would like. This class is open to participants 12-18 if accompanied by an adult also taking the class.

    If we could gaze into our communal crystal ball, what would we see? What will the future bring and how can we begin to prepare for that now? 

    The theme of this conference is about the future of living history. We can’t predict it. But we can be open to it. We can prepare for it. We can be flexible, adaptable, and resilient to change as it will inevitably occur.  Because 50 years from now, we want to be not just surviving but thriving. We want to be critical to how people see themselves, their communities, and their world.  And we can start today!
