Hands-on Heritage: January- Summer Winters and Winter Summers

Hands-on Heritage: January- Summer Winters and Winter Summers


Come to learn a new/old skill! 

Tyler State Park is partnering with Nichole Gerding of Thankful Sage Farm School to bring you ‘Hands-On Heritage.’

In each of these programs, we will discuss local history in context of the season, and try our hand at some heritage skills to take home to share with our families.  

We are offering two options for classes- a Monday evening session which allows older children (12 and up) to join their parent/guardian (please note, we cannot be responsible for your child) and an adults only Tuesday morning session. 

*PLEASE NOTE- there is now a Tuesday afternoon drop-off class option for homeschool teens (12 and up) in a separate listing


What: “Summer Winters and Winter Summers”

Explore how early colonists prepared for, survived, and made merry during the dark cold months of winter! Receipts for early libations, games and handcrafts will also be discussed. Our hands-on activity will be making a pair of mittens, repurposed from old sweaters and woolens. All materials provided.

When: Monday, 1/13  6-7:30 pm

            Tuesday, 1/14  10-11:30am
