The Morrison County Historical Society will be hosting Heirloom Arts Day on Saturday, June 8, 2013, at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
What are heirloom arts? They are art forms and crafts passed down from generation to generation, connecting us to our ancestors. They include the traditional fiber arts of knitting, crocheting, and embroidery, but go well beyond these arts to include blacksmithing, leather working, beading, whittling and other forms of woodworking, basket making, rosemaling, tatting, rug making, shoe making, weaving, and more. We’re even including beekeeping in our definition of heirloom arts.
Heirloom Arts Day will include a new heirloom arts exhibit, demonstrations of heirloom arts and how to properly store heirlooms, a talk on the difference between an heirloom and an antique, music and refreshments.
The event is free and open to the public. For more info, please call 320-632-4007.
