Aldrich Museum-Toy Workshop

Inspired by the economy, election anxiety, and the anticipated chilly November weather, The Aldrich announces Free-for-All Family Day, Saturday, November 1, 2008.

Family Day will feature a plush toy-making workshop with Wendy Ann Gardner, author, illustrator, and creator of Scary Stories and Naughty Naughty Pets, on Saturday, November 1, 2008, from 12 noon to 5 pm. Organized activities begin at 1 pm.

Adults and children of all ages are invited to visit the Museum totally free to enjoy an afternoon of shapes and zany creatures during a four-hour toy-making workshop from 1 to 5 pm. Learn how to make your own plush characters, starting with a crazy shape. Gardner will help with the sewing, the rest of the creature details are up to the designer!
