Children can take a step back in time and create an crazy quilt square at Hands on History on April 7 at King Manor Museum.A popular pastime 200 years ago, crazy quilts were made from spare scraps of fabric and sewn with fancy stitches, sometimes for fun, and sometimes to teach children to sew. Special guest artist Risa Puno, whose work is currently displayed on the front lawn of King Manor, will lead the activity and talk about both the historical and modern influences that inspired her to create her sculpture. Weather permitting, we will make our quilts while sitting on Risa’s artwork!
Hands-on-History on April 7, 1 to 4 pm. Free. Suitable for children 3 years and older, adults welcome.
