"Remembering" through hands-on practice

Many historical skills and techniques would be lost to time were it not for those who continue to practice them to this day. Try your own hand at an exciting sampling of skills that have endured through the centuries or have been re-created through research and experimentation. We have a fantastic lineup of Enduring Skills stations for both adults and kids ages 5 and up!

Enduring Skills Workshops:

We are currently in the process of developing and scheduling a wonderful selection of historical skills workshops. Please be sure to check back again as we will post the details once everything is in place. Pre-registration is strongly recommended for some of the stations that may have limited spaces open (as noted below).  Be sure to bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it with your family!
