Crafts at Christmas Event This Weekend at Genesee Country Village & Museum
On Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 13 and 14, families may create any—or all—of a half dozen different 19th-century crafts, turning tin, fabric, paper, even cinnamon sticks into unique holiday ornaments. Kids will delight in discovering the history of the craft from a museum artisan while they work.
This year's selection includes the perennial favorite tin-punched ornament—choose from any of a dozen different designs—along with a tea cup quilt, peanuts on a string, apple-and-spice sachet, glorious paper roses and some fun cinnamon stick snowmen and Santas.
The weekend program is a family affair, with crafts for adults and children of all skills. Each craft is $4. A combination ticket for all six crafts is $20. The event runs 10 a.m.-3 p.m. each day in the museum's Meeting Center dining room.
