Educational Workshops Planned for Fall

Delta Cultural Center - Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Delta Cultural Center education coordinator Richard Spilman is planning a series of workshop focusing on teaching skills from a bygone era. These workshops are free, but registration is required.

The first workshop is slated for Saturday, September 9, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. Participants will meet at the Pavilion, 116 Cherry St. and will learn to make three types of candles – dip, chunk, and sand. The deadline for registering is September 7.

Two Dutch oven cooking workshops will be held this fall. The first is September 23 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., and the second is October 14 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Participants will learn the history of Dutch oven cooking and will receive a cookbook to take home. Anyone interested should register by September 21 or October 12, depending on which workshop they plan to attend.

If you are interested in making your own Christmas ornaments, then register for the workshop on December 16 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. Common materials such as string and fabric will be used to make the ornaments. The deadline for registering is December 14.

The cooking and ornament workshops will be held at the Depot, 95 Missouri St.
