In colonial America coiling decorative paper was called “quillwork” because the shaft of a goose feather or “quill” was used as the tool to roll strips of paper. This spring we will be teaching the art of quilling at History Workshop. Come and join us to make a beautiful example of quillwork.
This summer we will have tea time every day at the History Workshop! Learn about the rich global history of tea and join us in sampling black tea, green tea, and herbal tea. See our indoor Camellia sinensis tea plant, then visit our garden to pick mint and lemon balm, popular herbs for tea. Make a tea bag of black or herbal tea to take with you, practice proper tea etiquette, and choose some recipes for traditional foods eaten at tea time.
