Museum workshop teaching local youngsters some skills

July 28, 2011

Just because school's out doesn't mean the time for learning is over.

The Heritage Museum is taking a week of summer to teach youth something a little different than what they would normally learn in a classroom. For three days, 12 youngsters will learn how to crochet, embroider, simple sew, cook, decorate a cake and other types of artful skills.

Janet Abner, summer education projects coordinator for the museum, brought the idea to the table.
