Throughout the workshop participants will learn the history of these processes and learn how industrialization changed the industry.  Two sessions will be held, one on Sunday, August 19th from 1pm to 4pm centered on youth and family instruction, and another on Thursday, August 23rd from 6pm to 9pm, geared towards adults.
