Why not take in some culture and crafts, at the Westfield Historical Society’s Reeve House on Saturday, Nov. 16, 1 — 3 p.m.? Come to the Reeve House, at 314 Mountain Ave. in Westfield, with your children (aged 5 and up) for making Fall crafts. Adults can take a tour of the Reeve House while their children are crafting.
Children will learn the art of wool-felting to make wool acorns for Fall decorations, and they’ll make pine cone turkeys to decorate your Thanksgiving table.
Meg Wastie, program consultant for the society, and other educators will demonstrate these two historic craft methods using natural materials. Attendees will make and bring home their hand-made Fall crafts. Space is limited, so reservations are required and the cost is $5 per child payable on Nov. 16. For reservations, call 908-654-1794; or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
