These workshops have been listed onto our site, but we felt that they could not be easily found within the list. We will continue to update this entry as we find new workshops going on within the year.
Why these workshops are important? They help those who have a considerable amount of interest in a particular period to learn more about it and how people lived during a particular time period. It guides those who have an interest in a special skill or craft to learn how to start and complete a project.
What will you learn? These workshops guide reenactors and those new to the hobby to learn more about the lives of the people they are portraying. Some of these workshops you will learn how to cook using a hearth, hand sewing clothing, spinning, period dancing and other various activities.
Where are they located? All of the workshops I’ve listed have been found by viewing area historical museums many of them who have workshops that teach people more about the 18th and 19th Century life.
