Fairy House Workshop

Event Details

Date: April 12, 2023

Come join us for some April vacation fun! The Greenwich Historical Society is offering our third annual Fairy House workshop. In this workshop, students will learn lore surrounding a fairy’s home, from the Japanese Urashima Taro to the English Goblin Market to the Hudson Valley’s own revolutionary Rip Van Winkle. As students learn this lore, they will build a fairy house for their home garden. 

Students will design and build their house out of a wide array of natural and recycled materials. What makes the best roof? How do I build a window? How many chairs does a fairy need? In the pursuit of these answers, students will get to test their creativity, ingenuity, and the laws of physics. Who knew building a fairy house could be so much fun?!

There will be two classes offered. Afternoon classes are for children aged 8-10 who can work independently. These classes are for children only, no parents. Morning classes are for children aged 6-8 with parents encouraged, but not required, to come and build with their young ones.
