For curious creative kids, a fun new Project Every Week!
The Westport Historical Society will echo with the sounds of creativity starting Oct. 1 when Wednesday Workshops for kids ages 6 to 12 launches under the leadership of WHS Education Director Elizabeth DeVoll.
“The workshops are a fun way to tickle the curiosity of creative kids,” says DeVoll. For the child fascinated by technology, there’s “Industrial Revolution Robots,” where kids will make their own bots from nuts and bolts. For the budding artist there are workshops on how to make folk art signs and decoupage treasure boxes. Workshops on making sock dolls, parchment paper, scary Halloween stuff, antique toy reproductions and holiday gifts round out the syllabus.
“Wednesday Workshops,” Wednesdays, Oct. 1-Dec. 17, 3:45 to 5:15 p.m. Ages 5-12. There is a $25 per session fee, $20 for members. For 10 sessions, the fee is $150 members, $200 non-members; includes all supplies. Reservations suggested: (203) 222-1424.
