Homeschooler Day: Stitches (2018)

February 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

We often think that things made by hand are “old fashioned”, but we’ll explore some of the tools, materials, and techniques people use now for making things by hand: spinning, knitting, weaving and sewing.

SECOND WEDNESDAY OF EVERY MONTH. Morning session takes place 10 am to noon. Afternoon session takes place 1 pm to 3 pm. Program is canceled if Philadelphia School District is closed for weather emergencies.

$12 per student or free for Bartram’s Garden Members at the Family level and up. Become a Member online at bartramsgarden.org/join or join on program day. Reservations required; you can register at the calendar section of our website.

Contact Leslie Gale, or 215-729-5281 ext. 110. Volunteer opportunities available for older students.
