For the first time this year, we're offering two of our most-requested hands-on Museum kids' workshops during the summer!
For information or registration: 705 748 9153 x 203
Wednesday, July 13: 9:00-12:00, ages 9+
Souvenir Paddle-Carving, $19.80 member/$22 non-member
Carve and craft a 24-inch paddle using the traditional tools! A great intro to paddle-carving that teaches many of the steps of full-size paddle-carving using a soft wood and a more accessible (i.e. quicker to complete) size. Participants will explore paddle parts and unique paddles in our collection, but will spend most of the morning carving their own paddles with a spokeshave, and finishing it with sandpaper, to create a beautiful, smooth keepsake to treasure.
Please be sure to wear closed-toe shoes for safety during the wood-working part of this workshop!
Wednesday, July 27, 9:30-11:30, ages 7+
Soapstone Carving, $13.95 member/$15.50 non-member
Participants create a soapstone pendant using only pre-shaped stone and sandpaper, water and oil, inspired by the Arctic artifacts in our collection. Traditional Inuit games and stories too!
