Bring home a baby doll for your little one - handmade by you! Be creative, be inspired by Elizabeth Stubbs, a Waldorf early childhood teacher and artist, and other doll makers in training. Dolls are made from all natural materials, sweet, lightweight, and oh so soft for hugging. Basic sewing skills are all you need for this workshop. $35 workshop fee includes hands-on instruction and materials to make the doll. Fun, good conversation and refreshments are part of this gathering, too. The workshop will take place at the Gatehouse. Limited to 12 attendees, register soon! Adults only.
Spend some weekend time with others who are interested in science and wildlife, and get in touch with your "inner scientist!" You'll get a chance to meet live creatures, design something "green," or explore a new field in science.
Start a new maple sugaring tradition by renting your own sugaring bucket for yourself, your family, or as the perfect gift. Join our sugaring experts on Saturday, February 23, for a two-hour interactive program and experience this lovely New England tradition.
Do you have a mini iron chef in your house? Here's a perfect opportunity to nurture their interest in the culinary arts at Williams-Sonoma's Market Street Lynnfield location! Join us for a fun class all about Valentine’s Day Cookies! We’ll make one of our favorite cookie doughs together, then roll it out and use our Cookie Stamps to emboss them with heart, bee mine, and love designs.
Warmer spring weather means its sheep shearing time on the farm. But what to do with all that wool? Learn about the time honored tradition of wool felting. We’ll start by learning how to “card” the raw wool into soft fiber for spinning or felting. Afterwards, we’ll try our hand at making felt balls to be used for farm-fun necklaces. Wool, wood beads and decorative string will be provided, but feel free to bring anything special of your own to add to your necklace. Recommended for ages 5-9.
Today we'll learn about one of nature's tastiest treats: maple syrup. We'll discover how to distinguish a sugar maple from all the other trees in the forest and tap one to collect the sap. After a visit to the sugarhouse, we'll know how sap is converted into syrup and try some on our very own pancakes. We'll see who can tell the difference between store-bought syrup and the real stuff!
Calling all boys and girls in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade who love to write!
