Spring Break ART-ifact Discovery Week

Join us during spring break as we take a close look at historic ART-ifacts!

WOVEN WONDERS: On Tuesday, weave through our exhibits and find the woven treasures hidden in our museum. Then, create your own woven ART-ifact from yarn or paper.

SUPER STENCILS: On Wednesday, learn about the designs found in the chairs, chests, and other wood ART-ifacts. Use these designs or invent your own design and stencil a box to take home.

ELEGANT EMRODIERY: On Thursday, explore the world of elegant costumes and colorful embroidery. Get inspired by the clothing and needlework in the exhibits, then design and “sew” your own kid-friendly needlework.

MARVELOUS METALS: On Friday, discover how metal is transformed into swords, lanterns, and other metal ART-ifacts. Then, design and make a punched tin lantern to take home.

All programs run from 2-4:00 p.m. 

A private, nonprofit, educational organization established in 1825, the Connecticut Historical Society is the state’s official historical society and one of the oldest in the nation. Located at One Elizabeth Street in Hartford, the CHS houses a museum, library, and the Edgar F. Waterman Research Center that are open to the public and funded by private contributions. The CHS’s collection includes more than 4 million manuscripts, graphics, books, artifacts, and other historical materials accessible at our campus and on loan at other organizations.

The CHS collection, programs and exhibits help Connecticut residents connect with each other, have conversations that shape our communities, and make informed decisions based on our past and present.
