Quiet Valley's Heritage Craft Day
Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm will feature the 11th annual Heritage Craft Day on Saturday, August 5, 2107 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Heritage Craft persons will demonstrate traditional craft and trade skills of the 1800s throughout the day.
There will be hands-on opportunities for visitors who wish to try out some of these crafts for themselves. Demonstrations such as spinning, weaving, wheat weaving, bobbin lace, horn work, pottery and blacksmithing will take place.
The purpose of Heritage Craft Day is to provide a greater awareness of these historic folk crafts that were essential to everyday living in previous generations. This is a wonderful chance for individuals, families, and children to explore the exciting world of traditional crafts. The demonstrations are under tents in case of rain. The schedule is subject to change.
Heritage Craft Day, a part of Quiet Valley’s summer “Art from the Heart” series, is supported by a Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts Project Stream grant. It is included in the regular historic tour admission price of $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children ages 3 – 12 and children two and under are free. Farm tours are available throughout the day on Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The bake oven will be in operation. There will also be wagon rides for a small fee, weather permitting. Farm and event are open rain or shine. Arrive by 2:15 to see all parts of the farm tour.
All funds raised go to support Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, educational corporation.
